Alarnatha temple is dedicated to lord Vishnu, which is located in Brahmagiri. Brahmagiri is located @25 km away from Puri City, which is on the way when we are travelling from Puri to Chillika Lake.

On the day of Snana Yatra, A total of 108 herbal and aromatic water pots are used for the bath of three siblings Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra. It is believed that on this day, Lord Jagannath washes all our sins and purifies the world. When Jagannath Swamy Snana Yatra is completed then the three deities stay away from the public view for a period of 15 days. Swamy becomes ill and not available in Puri for Devotees Darshan. Popularly known as Anasara or Anavasara. Anavasara is the two weeks period when lord Jagannatha take rest in isolation from the rest of the world. This happens during Krishna Paksha of Ashadha Masam.
Lord Chaitanya mahaprabhu during his stay in Puri used to see Lord Jagannath daily. During Anavasara period when lord and his siblings were taken to the secret chambers for 15 days, he was unable to see his dear Lord. SO as per the legend lord Jagannath himself directed him to go to Brahmagiri ans visit Alarnatha temple. It is believed that those who cannot worship lord Jagannath during Anavasara period can get the blessings of the deity if they visit the Alarnatha temple. Alarnatha Darsahn in Krishnapaksha Ashadha Masam is equalant to Puri Jaganath Darshan as per devotees believes hence this temple will crowded during those days. During this period temple servitors offered holy porridge (Rice with Jaggery), known as "Kheer" in local language, to the Lord.

Close to the temple one can visit Sri Brahma Gaudiya Math, which was established by Srila Bhakti Siddhanta saraswati Thakura and later ISCON has taken up several renovation work here. This Math is adjacent to the Main Alarnath Temple.

Well maintained and clean. Pandas give full info on the site. Please be aware of requests for dhaan, donations etc, which is a bad practice in all temples in Orissa.

This temple is located in between Puri and Chilika Lake, as per the local people and history, Lord Jaganath lives in this temple for some 2 weeks when he is having fever.
Please be aware of the Pujaris here, they have a very bad attitude.

Had visited as a part of the HKM in a group of 30 In this temple Lord Vishnu is worshiped as Lord Alarnath. The deity has four arms. He holds Chakra in his upper right hand, Lotus in his lower right hand, Conch in his upper left hand and Club in his lower left hand. Lord Vishnu's carrier Garuda kneels at the feet of the deity with his hands folded in prayer position. The deities of Lord Krishna's queens Rukmini and Satyabhama are also found inside the temple.Deity of Lord Chaitanya is also there inside the temple. Nice quiet place where you can pray in peace !!
