Jagannatha is not the only deity worshipped in the temple, though it is known as the ‘Jagannatha Temple’. But along with Jagannatha, two others namely, Balabhadra, and Subhadra are also worshipped here. These three, constitute the basic and fundamental trinity and are considered to be the forms and manifestations of the omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent supreme power.
