According to mythological beliefs, bathing is the birthday of Lord Jagannath on Purnama day. On this day, Lord Jagannath, his elder brother Balarama and sister Subhadra are taken off the Ratam throne and taken to a mandap near the temple. They are given a bath here. This bath is administered through 108 urns. According to the mythology, now Lord B becomes. His body starts to heat up. After this they are kept in a special class. Here God stays for 15 days.During this time only the principal servants and vaidyas of the temple are allowed to enter the lord's classroom. Apart from these, no one is allowed to go to special class. In the meantime, the worship of Lord Jagannath's representative, Alarnath, is installed and worship is started. After spending 15 days in a special room, when God comes out of the room, he gives darshan to the people. It is called Nav Yuvana Naitra Utsav. After this, Lord Jagannath comes out with sister Subhadra and elder brother Balra and goes out for a tour on his chariot.

Temple Establishment: -
This temple was established by King Indradyumna of Malwa. His father's name was India and mother's name was Sumati. According to mythology, the king once saw Lord Jagannath in a dream. In the dream God asked the king to find one of his idols in the cave of Nilinchal mountain and install the idol by building a temple. God called this idol as Neelmadhav. After this, the king along with his servant goes out to find the idol of God in the cave of Nilanchal mountain. One of the people who went out with the king was Vidyapati, a Brahmin. Vidyapati knew about the people of the Sabar clan who worship Neelmadhav.
Vidyapati also knew that the people of Sabar clan hide the statue of Lord Neelmadhav inside the cave. The head of this clan was a worshiper of Vishvavasu Bhagwan. However, the command of the chieftain was paramount to get the idol of God and the chief worshiper of God. He would not be ready to give the idol of God in any case. For this reason, Vidyapati cleverly married the chief's daughter. With his wife, Vidyapati managed to reach the cave where the idol of Bhagwan Nilamadhav was kept. Vidyapati stole the idol of Neelmadhav and handed it over to the king.
It is said that Vishwavasu was deeply hurt by the theft of his idol. Because of this, God also felt very sad that his worshiper is sad. For this reason Neelmadhav returned back to the cave and promised King Indradyumna that he would return to them one day but the king should build a temple for him. After this, the king asked the Lord to be seated by building a temple, but then God said that swim from Dwarka and bring a piece of big tree coming towards Puri. With this you make my idol. The king and his men immediately set out in search of a piece of tree. They found a piece of wood but were unable to pick it up. Then the king remembered Viswavasu, the head of the clan. The king enlisted the help of Vishvavasu. Vishwavasu brought the wood to the temple and then the idol of God was made.

According to legend,
   Once mother Yashoda, Devaki ji and her sister Subhadra came to Vrindavan from Dwarka. The queens present with him requested him to tell them about the child pastimes of Shri Krishna.
On this matter, Mother Yashoda and Devaki agreed to tell those queens. Kanha and Balaram do not listen to their words, that's why Mata Devaki's sister Subhadra started guarding the door outside.
Mother Yashoda started the saga of Krishna's pastimes and as she went on speaking, everyone became engrossed in her words. Subhadra herself forgot the idea of ​​guarding and started listening to her.
Meanwhile, both Krishna and Balarama came there and no one was aware of this, Subhadra was so engrossed that she did not know when Kanha and Balarama came there.
Both Lord Krishna and Bhai Balarama also started listening to their pastimes with mother Yashoda. Listening to his devils and actions, his hair started to grow, because of surprise the eyes grew bigger and the mouth remained open.At the same time, Subhadra herself also became so enchanted that love started melting in emotion. That is why he is the youngest in the Jagannath temple. All Krishna ji was listening to the leelas that meanwhile Narada Muni came here.Narada ji began to see the attitude of everyone that everyone realized that someone had arrived. Because of this, the text of Krishna Leela stopped here.
Narada ji, seeing the incarnation that fascinated the mind of Krishna ji, said, “Wow lord, you look so beautiful. When will you take avatar in this form? " At that time Krishna ji said that he would take such an avatar in Kali Yuga.
According to the promise, in Kali Yuga, Shri Krishna came in the dream of King Indradyumna and asked him to make his Deity in the trunk of a tree on the river side of Puri and later install it in the temple.
On the order of Shri Krishna, the king started looking for a qualified carpenter for this work. In a few days an old Brahmin found him and expressed his desire to make this Deity but this Brahmin placed a condition before the king that he would make this Deity in a closed room and no one would open the door of the room while he was working. So that work will be left unfinished.

Initially the voice of work came but after a few days the voice stopped coming from that room. The king wondered whether he would open the door and see it once. Something has happened to that old Brahmin.
In this concern, the king opened the door of that room one day. As soon as the door opened, he got an incomplete Deity in front. Then he realized that Brahmins were none other than Vishwakarma himself. He went against the condition and opened the door.
At that time Narada came to Muni and he told the king that just as God had said in dream to create this Deity, in the same way, to keep it incomplete, the door was also opened.
The king got those unfinished idols installed in the temple. This is the reason that in the temple of Jagannath Puri, there is no stone or other metal idol but an idol made using tree trunk is worshiped.

The idol of Shri Krishna, Subhadra and Balabhadra (Balarama) is enshrined in the sanctum sanctorum of this temple. It is said that Mata Subhadra was very much in love with her maternal grandfather, so to fulfill this wish, Shri Krishna, Balarama and Subhadra ji visited Dwarka in different chariots. Since then, every year Rath Yatra is carried out in Puri.

It is said that the direct does not need proof, anyone can see these wonders by visiting this temple of Lord Jagannath, but even after much efforts, still have not been exposed to these mysteries, some of these are as follows-
The flag flutches against the wind - The flag at the summit of the temple always waved in the opposite direction of the wind. Why this happens remains a mystery.

The prasad of the lowest vessel is finally cooked. Surprisingly too, the prasad never falls short in the temple and the prasad also ends as soon as the gates of the temple are closed.
Do not listen to the sound of the waves inside the temple - it will not be any less that you will feel that if you keep one step from the temple's lion gate, you will not hear the sound of the waves of the sea, especially in the evening you will experience this wonderful experience very well. Can feel. But as soon as you step out of the temple, you will hear the sound of waves clearly.
Do not kill the birds even above the temple - you must have heard the saying that without permission, Parinda cannot be killed even here, but in the Jagannath temple, this saying can be seen to be true. Do not pass over
There is no shadow of the upper part - it is a law of science that the shadow of whomever will be illuminated, regardless of the size, will be made small or big. But the upper part of the temple of Lord Jagannath challenges this law of science because at no time of the day does it reflect its shadow.
Here the flowing Ganges flows - often in the sea areas the wind moves from the sea to the earth during the day when it changes its position in the evening, it starts flowing from the earth towards the sea but here Lord Jagannath's Maya turns it upside down Gives and air flows from the earth to the sea in the day and from the sea to the earth in the evening.

Death of Lord Krishna: -

It is said that whoever comes here with a true heart and asks for his vow at the feet of God, it will surely be fulfilled. A legend associated with the Jagannath temple makes it more mysterious.
Mystery is a word that remains intact from the creation of this creation till today and will probably last as long as this world remains.

When his period of Leela was completed on earth, he left his body and went to Swadham. The Pandavas cremated his body. During this, his heart kept burning with fire.
The Pandavas made it flow into the water. Then it transformed into a log. This stilt got to King Indradyumna. He had faith in Lord Jagannath. They brought him and installed him inside the idol of Lord Jagannath. She has been here since then. Though the idol of God is changed after 12 years, but the log is unchanged.
Another interesting thing associated with this log is that even the priests of the temple have not seen it. When the idol is converted, they blindfold and the hands are covered with cloth.

The family did not agree to this relationship when the Brahmin told this at his home and was very disrespectful to that poor boy. Unhappy and unhappy with the promise, the boy went to Pachayant, and the Panchas asked for proof. The boy said that Gopal Bhagwan was present there at the time of the promise of marriage. Punches also provoked laughter with this thing of the poor boy. To prove his truth, the boy then reached Vrindavan.
