The Temple of Jagannath stands on an eminence near the sea at Puri, situated on the east-coast of India. For centuries Puri, Purushottama Puri, so Sri kshetra, as the place is variously known, has been an important centre of Hindu worship, famous alike for sanctity and historic associations. "Puri" is the seat of Jagannath, the Lord of Universe; the sanctity of the place exists from pre-historic period where traditions cannot reach." The Origin and the antiquity of Jagannath worship at Puri is still shrounded in mystery. According to tradition, Puri, which is also known as Niladri (the Blue Mountain), was once a richly wooded hill inhabited by the Savaras, a pre-Aryan and Pre-Dravidian tribe of the Austric linguistic family.
