A temple with a Specific Cause

This temple is used as the second temple for Lord Jagannath during the Rathayatra. Other wise this is a pretty not-so-sought after place in Puri.

We had not so good experience here. This temple was lonely. All the pandits were sitting in front of the statues and requesting for money. Really disappointed.
