JAGARNATHPUR

Every one understood that Lord Jagarnath Himself had brought food to him in the gold vessels, so pleased, as he was, with the Oraons devotion. Next night the Thakur had a dream that he must construct a temple of Jagarnath and enshrine the images of Jagarnath, Balabhadra and Subhadra at Jagarnathpur. On his return the Thakur did so.

The second legend, which is more current among the non-tribal people, is that the Thakur was a devotee of Lord Jagarnath and used to go to Puri frequently for darshan. He was being harassed by the horse-men of the. Peshwas frequently and he prayed to Lord Jagarnath for help. The enemies were routed and after this the Thakur built the temple at Jagarnathpur. The third legend is that the Thakur had a dream in which Lord Jagarnath Himself directed him to build a temple at Jagarnathpur, which he did.

The Jagarnath temple at Jagarnathpur is built according to the model of the Jagarnath temple at Puri. There is a Mousi Bari (aunt's house) corresponding to the Gundichaghar at Puri.
