About Alarnatha Mandira

About twenty-five kilometers from the Puri Jagannath temple is another famous temple called the Alarnatha Mandira on the Brahmagiri Hills. This temple was built in1128 AD by King Madan Mahadev. The deity in this temple is a form of Lord Vishnu, a four-handed deity with an Abhaya-mudra in his right hand. As the story goes, Lord Brahma worshiped Lord Narayana or another form of Vishnu in this hill during the period called Satya-yuga. Later he carved a deity of the Lord, and that is where the hills get the name Brahmagiri. In the temple, two of Lord Alarnatha’s consorts Sri and Bhu accompany the Lord. Garuda sits at the feet of the Lord with folded hands in prayer. The temple also houses small deities of Rukmini and Satyabhama. During the Krishna Paksha in the Indian calendar month of Ashadha, at a period of time when Lord Jagannath cannot be seen by the Devotees in Puri, this temple becomes quite crowded.
