Sri Sri Sonar Gouranga Mandir is situated at Chakratirtha Road. The temple has the shrines of Shri Rama, Lord Jagannatha, Balaram and Subhadra. Bag / Mobile is not allowed inside the temple. When we visited, the temple was closed, however we could see a small golden Gouranga idol through small opening of door. The temple premises need better maintenance.

It's one of the landmark temples of Puri but so badly maintained in a dilapidated state . Otherwise a very tranquil place to sit and contemplate .

Temple is like any other temple. But the self proclaimed authority of the temple bar people from entering the temple. Fighting bitter spats with the devotees. Disgusting people they are. Worth not visiting.

You are not allowed in this temple with smart phone or camera. So there is no photograph with this review. Not sure why photography is prohibited in most temples of Puri. The idols are no national security issue, I do not suppose the camera flash light will do harm to the idols. I would be very interested to know if there's any good reason for why cameras are prohibited. Now let us go to the part of the idol. Gouranga = Gour+Anga (Bahubrihi Samas) = Gour (Pale skin complexion) + Anga (Limbs). Chaitanya Mahaprabhu (also known as Chaitanyadeb/ Srikrishna chaitanya/ Nimai Sanyasi) was born in 1486 and was also called Gouranga due to his pale skin colour. Sonar in Bengali is "Of Gold". However, don't expect to see gold idol of Chaitanyadeb. Instead you will see a gold idol (supposedly - because it is very small, precious gold result in small idols normally) of Sr Krishna playing flute. The guard at the gate told me that Gouranga assumed the Krishna roopa here. Hence the name. I don't know the history of the place. The building looks like it used to be a place of a moneyed householder in the yesteryears. Now with their money gone - it is probably in the hands of trustees. Who do not have the business acumen or wish to make it a place of business. So this place has no entry fee, neither it is well maintained. You need money to maintain it - that money is not coming from anywhere. Therefore, though it might be a place of Vaishnava religious significance, it is not that crowded, neither is it well maintained with pom and fare.

During Dec'17, myself along with my parents got to visit Sri Sri Sonar Gouranga Mandir, which was situated at 3 kms distance from Puri Jagannath temple.

The presiding deity of the temple is Lord Gauranga, along with shrines of Lord Jagannatha, Balaram and Subhadra and also Sri Rama and other popular incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Photography is strictly prohibited inside the temple. We have offered our prayers and had blissful time at the temple.

Sad to see such a historical place going to ruins because of gross negligence and rampant commercial interests . This is a quiet and peaceful place located at CT Road . Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu was the incarnation of lord Krishna and was instrumental in rekindling the faith of devotees during the 16th century. This small temple is dedicated to him . Not sure who manages it ,but I saw ill maintained ,dilapidated building which houses the deity . Could have been better

About three km from Puri hotel this temple is located on Chakratirtha road in Puri town.The idol of Gauranga ,that is ,Chaitanya Mahaprabhu is worshipped here.Long back this place used to be surcharged with religious fervour, sentiments of Krishna consciousness ,absolute surrender to God Krishna , to the presiding deity of Puri ,Lord Jagannath.A few Maths are there for the devotees.Morning and evening time is best time to visit the temple and realise the divine presence.Mostly visited by pilgrims ,it is a calm and quiet place.
