Jagannath Dev Temple
 

This temple established in 1860, located at Sadar Bazar is the first  Jagannath Temple of Chattisgarh. The temple has many legends attached to it. The main festival held here is the 'Rathyatra' also known as Lord Jagannath's Rathyatra involves a procession wherein idols of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balbhadra and Devi Subhadra are taken in chariots or 'raths'. On full moon day the 'Rathyatra' goes back to the Jagannath temple. It is believed that those who get a glimpse of the deities Lord Jagannath, Lord Balbhadra and Devi Subhadra during the Rathyatra attain salvation 'moksha'. Due to this popular belief, the rathyatra is witnessed by people not only from Raipur but also from nearby places.
