Gundicha a Temple about two miles northeast of the Temple of Lord Jagannath in Puri that is said to be named after the wife of Indradyumna Maharaj, the King of Puri who built both of the Temples. Sriman Mahaprabhu saw the Gundicha Temple as a form of Vrndavan and would personally clean the Temple each year on the day prior to the Ratha Yatra, the festival in which Krsna, in the form of Lord Jagannath, travels to Gundicha as a way of fulfilling the devotees’ desire for Him to return to Vrndavan from Dvaraka. The yearly cleansing of the Gundicha Temple demonstrates the necessity of purifying the heart so that the Lord can be received and served within it.
