JAGARNATHPUR

A very large fair is held on both the Rathayatra days at Jagarnathpur and hundreds of shops are opened in which all sorts of commodities are sold.  The Chutia temples are relies of the glorious days of the Chotanagpur Raj. It is said that when the temple was constructed there were 21 monasteries, 21 tanks and 21 gardens in Chutia.

This, however, seems to be a tall claim as the area of the village is not so large. Inside the temple is enshrined the idol of Shiva in his linganpura. In the same cells there are images of Devi, Annapurna, Lakshmi, Parvati and Ganesh. The images of Rama, Lakshmana, Sita, Krishna and Radha are enshrined on a big platform some of these images are evidently installed much later. The Chutia Mandir has undergone many changes in its images.

The construction of the Jagarnath temple at Jagarnathpur and the installation of the images of Radha and Krishna at the Chutia temple were followed by the construction of a beautiful Jagarnath temple at Seraikella in Singhbhum district. The latter temple isextremely popular and thousands of people visit it annually for doing puja. The same ceremonies as in Puri or in Ranchi are held at the Jagarnath temple at Seraikella. The temple was constructed and consecrated by the Ruling house of Seraikella.
