world pictures Peninsular India: Puri

The main road in Puri is phenomenally wide to accommodate the huge (nearly 50 feet high) temple carts that annually trundle along it. (The English word "juggernaut" is a corruption of the name Jagannathat, or Universal Lord, and refers to the supposedly unstoppable movement of those carts in motion.) Jagannathat, or Universal Lord, is a local god who evolved during the 15th century from earlier forms.
