Lord Vishnu and his avatars: The worship of Vishnu is different forms | The Times of India

In Odisha, Lord Vishnu is worshipped as Jagannath, a form that symbolises universal love. The Jagannath Temple in Puri is also one of the Char Dham pilgrimage sites. The most famous festival in Puri is the Rath Yatra, where massive chariots carry the deities Jagannath, Balabhadra, and sister Subhadra through the streets, to the Gundicha temple.

Lord Jagannath’s idol is also quite distinct as opposed to other forms of Lord Vishnu as one can only see his face, enormous eyes, and half his hands. It is said that his big eyes are a sign of his omnipresence and his message that he is overseeing everyone around the world.
