Description:
Jagannath Temple in Ranchi was built by Thakur Ani Nath Shahdeo, of Barkagarh Jagannathpur principality. It was completed on 25th December 1691. About 10 km from the main town, the temple is on top of a small hillock.

Similar to the famous Jagannath Temple in Puri, Orissa, this temple is built in the same architectural style, although smaller. And similar to the Rath Yatra in Puri, an annual fair cum rath yatra is held at this temple too, attracting thousands of tribal and non-tribal devotees not only from Ranchi but also from neighbouring villages and towns.

The temple collapsed on 6th August 1990. The reconstruction was started on 8th February 1992. It has now been fully restored.
