About Narendra Sarovara

Located in the north-east direction of the Puri’s famous Jagannath Temple, the Narendra Sarovar is among the most sacred water tanks in the entire state of Odisha. The Sarovar or lake covers 3.24 hectares and inside the tank there is a small island with a temple dedicated to Lord Lord Jagannath, Balarama, and Subhadra. In this Sarovar, a boat festival called Chandana Yatra is held every year. During this festival, Lord Madan Mohan takes a ride on a decorated boat which is locally called Chapa. Chandan Yatra, is a summer festival in April-May, celebrated on Akshaya Tritiya. It also marks the day when the rath or chariots constructions for Lord Jagannath starts. The name ‘Chandan Yatra’ itself suggests that during this festival the Jagannath trio is worshiped with sandal paste mixed with water. It is a festival that lasts for about forty-two days with two divisions, Bahar Chandan or outer Chandan and Bhitar Chandan or inner Chandan. Every year, thousands of people take a dip in this holy tank.
