The Bhaktivedanta Ashram has plans to construct a new temple for Lord Jagannatha at our headquarters in Bhadrak, Orissa. At present engineers and architects are working to finalize the design of the temple.

The temple will have a hall with around 7,000 square feet of space which will be used for bhajans, kirtans, pravachans and annadana. On the altar will preside Lord Jagannatha, Baladeva, Subhadra and Sudarshana in their ananda-murti forms as found in Sri Kshetra Puri Dham. The largest deities of Lord Jagannatha in the world (over 7 feet tall) were installed at our Ashram in Bhadrak, with the prana-pratistha ceremonies being performed for them in March of 2006 by pujaris from the ancient Puri Jagannatha mandir.

If you would like to contribute towards the construction of this temple, please enter the donation amount in the box on the top-right of this page. Donations sent by cheque should have the words ‘Temple Project’ in the memo field.

Below you can find pictures of a preliminary model of the temple. This is only a rough model and the final design will be altered in many ways before construction begins.
