Alarnath temple is situated in Brahmagiri. I visited this place during December and the hands of Alarnath was covered because there is a myth stating that he must be feeling cold. The pandas were worst here as well. There is a beautiful mahalakshmi and Shiva shrine inside the temple. There is a rock, which has the body marks of Chaitanya mahaprabhu. The pandas try to narrate a story and ask the pilgrims to donate money for vastra dhan, When the tourist donate, they will ask for more. They try to loot the money from the pilgirms in the name of lord

This temple has a nice history behind it. I was told, that Lord Jagganth will spend few days in this place while he is sick due to heavy cold showers during festival. If only Odisha govt can organize this middlemen properly, this would be a wonderful tourism destination

While returning from our sojourn at Satapada, our driver had taken a small detour from the main road at Brahmagiri and brought us at Alarnath Temple. At the temple entrance, a fellow in uniform stopped us asking to pay Rs.10/-for the camera and mobiles. On my insistence on a receipt, it was finally given.

The temple looked quite decent and well kept. In the sanctum sanctorum, the priest explained us the story behind visit of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu at the temple as Lord Jagannath fell ill in Puri. The idol of Lord Vishnu was impressive. The Mahalaxmi Temple in the same compound was quite nice too. As we went to witness the mythological stone slab eroded by the body shape of Chaitanya, the priest there started misbehaving with us asking for donation. We informed him that we had donated at the main Vishnu Temple, but he would not listen – such behaviour from a priest was deplorable and totally unexpected!

It could be an enjoyable trip to the small temple of Alarnath but one priest’s behaviour ruined it badly.

On the way to Chilika we dropped by the Temple of Alarnatha. The Alarnath temple in Brahmagiri, which is about 23 km from Puri. We were told, that Lord Jagganth will spend few days in this place while he is sick due to heavy cold showers during festival.

Went to visit this temple after a gap of nine years. The road condition from Puri to Alarnath has vastly improved. But the quaint villages are growing into rural towns. Large-scale construction work is going on inside and outside the temple premises. The greenery around has decreased too. The priests, although still not money-minded like those at the Puri temple but things may change very soon.

Constructed during 1129-1132 by Chodaganga Dev in Puri.This temple is situated in Brahamagiri which is around 20 kms from puri city.Mostly crowded for a month prior to Lord Jagannaths Ratha jatra where the devotees visits the temple have a darshan of lord Vishnu.This temple is old and not maintained properly.Hence you must be very careful while visiting the sanctum sanctorum because of less of fresh air.It is time to renovate the temple and have a exit door.
