The Jagdish Temple is located very near to the Tripolia Gate of the City Palace. It can be seen rising high above the surrounding buildings, and a steep flight of steps ascends up to the Temple gates, which is flanked by two carved marble elephants. There are many exquisite carvings on the temple walls, among which is the black stone image of Lord Vishnu as Jagannath, Lord of the Universe. Facing the entrance, in an enclosed shrine is a bronze winged statue of Garuda, who was the steed of Lord Vishnu and carried the God on his back.

The musical bhajans and prayers being sung within the temple gave us the feeling of peace and harmony.

The temple is open from 4.15 am to 1 pm in the morning, and 5.15 pm to 8 pm in the evening. There is no entry fee, but photography is prohibited inside the sanctum. A water cooler is provided for cold drinking water just outside the sanctum.

Tip: You can take off your footwear after ascending the steps and leave them in the free shoe racks provided there before entering the sanctum. Do not leave them at the roadside at the bottom of the steps.

It's so typical for my beloved India, that as a tourist and white person one is not only tolerated but welcome even in a temple. Not one dirty look, instead there was help and explanations from kind local people. The temple is stunning and impressive. Don't hesitate to donate a flower, sit there in peace, watch and listen!

Like all temples worth a visit ... very steep steps ... not sure if it was worth buying flowers to offer the gods as they did not seem to be placing them on the murti but just piling them high ... we paid 10 rupees for a lotus flower...

Here's a helpful tip -
The main entrance to this temple which is opposite the road coming from the City Palace has a lot of steep steps. Instead, enter from the back - right opposite the Sai Baba Temple. Here one only has to climb a couple of steps and you're in. Come out from the front where it's easier climbing down.

Similar to a lot of temples in India, so nothing exceptional.
