Guide: Jagannatha of Puri

This is a guide to Jagannatha of Puri: Dreamt by a King, Sculpted by the Gods (Volume 709). You can find it at Amazon.

Bizzell Reserves call number: PN 6790 .I443 A437 v.709

Summary: King Indradyumna seeks a holy statue to put in a great temple. In a dream he sees a vision of a statue of Krishna in a cave. The story is about the king's quest to find the statue and build the temple. It is something like a "Rip van Winkle" type of story in the end, with all kinds of twists and turns. This is the origin story of the Jagannath Temple in Puri which you can read about at Wikipedia.

I have not had time to write the Reading Guide for this one, so please help me with that: in addition to doing your own Reading Diary post at your blog, leave a comment here at this blog where you list the names, places, topics, anything you saw in this comic book that I could/should explain the Reading Guide later.

If you don't see anything that need explaining, leave a comment that says "Everything clear" or something like that.

That way, with your help, I'll be able to focus my attention on the comic books that people have the most questions about.
