Why Do Birds and Planes Not Fly Above The Jagannath Temple Puri?

You may have heard that birds and planes don't fly over Jagannath Temple Puri. Devotees believe it's God's grace. Is it true? 

Well, plenty of people believe so and that we don't seem to be an exception. So, without doubt, the actual fact we got into finding answers for this mystic fact of Jagannath Temple Puri.

After talking to a lot of experts from each side, those who attempt to find the scientific logic for this instance and also the others who believe that this is often God's magic, we found two extremely interesting explanations. In this short article, we'll inform you of both points of view.

The Mythological Reasons: Religious Explanation

Why birds don’t fly over the temple?

It is believed that Lord Jagannath is carried by ‘Garuda’. Garuda is the king of birds per Hindu mythology.

Because the king himself is taking care of the temple and Lord Jagannath, that’s why birds are scared to come back near or fly above the temple. this can be the explanation why no birds ever were seen flying over the temple.

Why Planes don’t fly over the temple?

The Nilachakra which is an eight metal Chakra ( Round shaped) over the Jagannath Temple Puri supposedly blocks all communications for the flying airplanes and hence aircraft avoids flying over the temple.

Obviously, this can be the reason for the believers.

Why Do Birds and Planes Not Fly Above The Jagannath Temple Puri?

Logical or Scientific Explanations:

Birds Explanation: 

Jagannath Temple Puri may be a coastal area. So, winds are very strong here. Jagannath Temple's height is around 1000 ft. So, it's difficult for tiny birds to face up to the strong wind at that height. There are not any large and powerful birds just like the eagle are found within the region.

Also, it's said actually none of the birds of that area can actually fly above that.

Planes Explanation:

Actually, Puri doesn’t come under the air traffic routes of India. Hence, for the apparent reasons planes aren't found flying above the temple.

It is also said that appeals are made to DGCA to create Puri is no flying zone, however, the appeal is yet not approved by DGCA.

Ok to cut it short, no birds fly over Jagannath temple Puri because there's Garuda and hence birds are scared to fly and also the actual fact no such bird is out there within the region that may fly more than the height of Jagannath Temple.

No planes fly off the temple because Puri temple doesn’t come under any of the flying routes and for believers. After all, the Nilachakra can create trouble for the planes.

Summary:

>>  Jagannath Temple Puri may be a coastal area. So, winds are very strong here. Jagannath Temple's height is around 1000 ft. So, it's difficult for tiny birds to face up to the strong wind at that height. There are not any large and powerful birds just like the eagle are found within the region.
