Orissa Association of Bharuch was born in 1997 with a handful of like minded people who have come down all along from Orissa to the ancient city of Bharuch(Gujarat) to earn their livihood. People of Orissa are peace loving like the people of Gujarat. They are also firm believers of God for which they use to celebrate many more festivals throughout the year. To create an atmosphere of brotherhood not only with the people of Orissa in Bharuch but from all corners of India/abroad and to live in peace and serve the people in times of need , the Association decided to construct a Temple of Lord Jagannath.
With the blessings of Almighty, Utkalika got an allotment of a land of 6000 sq.feet area from Govt. of Gujarat in 1997 for construction of Lord Jagannath Temple at Bharuch.
Shree Jagannath Seva Samiti, under the management of Utkalika is looking after the construction & complete management of Lord Jagannath Temple at Bharuch.
Lord Jagannath Temple at Bharuch is being constructed as a replica of Lord Jagannath temple of Puri but of smaller size with all Parswa Devatas around the temple.
