Lord Jagannath,Hindu God...

By debu    
Lord Jagannath is believed to be a deity form of Lord Krishna. The term Jagannath is a Sanskrit language term; a compound term where jagat means universe and nath means master. Sri Jagannath (Lord of the World) is believed to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, the second in the Holy Hindu Trinity of Gods (Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwar). Amongst the Vaishnavas, Jagannath is considered to be the most merciful Lord in the world. The image of the God has no legs and only stumps of arms. Jagannath appears together with his brother Balarama and sister Subhadra. The later two images are also devoid of hands and feet. These three images are worshipped in all the Jagannath temples, situated mostly in the eastern part of India. The oldest and most famous Jagannath idol is in the Jagannath Temple of Puri , in Orissa, India where every year the famous Ratha Yatra festival takes place. It is one of the four Holy `Dhamas` of India including temples at Rameshwaram, Dwaraka, and Badrinath.
