Narendra Tank is one of the largest tanks in Odisha and is believed to have been built during the 15th century. This tank is considered holy and has a lot of small and big temples surrounding it. There is an island in the middle of the lake with a small temple called Chandana Mandapa .
Thus Narendra tank is one of the most sacred and pious tanks of Orissa where the lord Jaganatha has his sacred bath. Surrounded with a number of small and large temples this is one of the most sacred tanks which is located at a distance of only 2 kms from the temple of Lord Jaganatha. This benefits the visitors who can get easy access to the lake.
The massive structure of Narendra tank is mainly known for the Chandana Yatra which is also known as Chandana Pushkarini. During this festival all the big and small deities are taken out of their temples and floated in the pious water of this lake. The deities are applied withy chandana paste and then washed with the sacred water of this tank. This ritual is organized in the Baishak month of Hindu calendar - the month which marks the beginning of scotching summer. Under this ritual Lord Jaganatha is escorted to this lake once in a year where he is supposed to have his bath once in the year.

There are four big Sarovars (tanks) in Puri. One is called Narendra Sarovar. A large beautiful lake, it was built in the 15th century by a royal dignitary called Narendra Dev.

During the Chandana Yatra (sandalwood festival) of Jagannath temple lasting three weeks, replicas of the images of the deities are taken round the tank in elegantly decorated and illuminated boats twice daily. The ceremonies are witnessed by large gatherings of people.

It is a nice place to visit and have a look, even on days when there is no festivity.
