Sabara Srikhetra

Koraput is mostly famous for its Jagannath Temple which is also known as Sabara Srikhetra. Srikhetra is normally referred to as Puri Jagannath, but the unique identity of the Koraput temple is because of the fact that no section of the society is barred entry. Sabara Srikhetra was founded by, among others, Sri Abhaya Chandra Mohapatra, the then Public Relation Officer of the Government of Orissa, Sri Krushna Chandra Panigrahy,the Present Secretary of Sabara Srikhetra Temple and Dr Nirod Gochhayat. Thousands flock to the temple every day for darshan. The Temple trust has built huge accommodation centres for pilgrims and is an important force behind the growing number of tourist arrivals. The trust also runs COATS (Council of Analytical Tribal Studies), a university–like educational institute is a successful attempt to restore and educate tribal way of life, customs, tradition, medicine, language, social structure and history.
