While we know Puri mainly for the #RathaJatra , #Jagannath Temple, and Konark, the place has many other worth watching sights too. Being Odisha's cultural center, it's a treasure trove of art, heritage and history.
Puri has what is called as the Pancha Thirtha, the 5 sacred tanks, which makes the pilgrimage complete. The Pancha Thirtha are Indradyumna, Rohini, Markandeya, Swetaganga and Mahodadhi which is basically the Sea itself.
Indradyumna Tank is located near Gundicha Ghar, where the deities are taken to during the #RathaJatra. Named after the legendary king of Puri, it is believed to have been formed by trodding of 1000s of cows which the King donated to Brahmins after the Asvamedha Yagna.
