Deities From Puri

by Bhanu Pratap Maharana

Posted August 3, 2006

I am from Jagannath Dham (Puri), Orissa. I am writing to you because I make various types of Jagannath, Balaram and sister Subhadra Deities from 2 inches to 15 inches (5 to 38 cm). All are of better quality and made from neem wood. During the last five years many devotees have come to our shop to purchase these Deities for worship.

We also make various dresses for Lord Jagannath to wear, such as raja vesha, hati vesha (elephant costume), vaman vesha, etc. Besides these, I also paint patachitra (paintings on tasar cloth), which take one to two months, depending upon size. If you have a shop, you can also obtain goods from me for resale.

If you are interested, please email me at
