The icon of Jagannath is a carved and decorated wooden stump with large round eyes and with stumps as hands, with the conspicuous absence of legs. The worship procedures, practices, sacraments, and rituals of Jagannath do not conform with those of classical Hinduism.

[3] it is made of wood, which is an exception to common Hindu iconographic deities of metal or stone.

[4] the origin and evolution of Jagannath worship, as well as iconography, is unclear and has been subject to intense academic debate. Jagannath lacks a clear Vedic reference and is also not a member of the traditional dashavatara concept or the classical Hindu pantheon,

[5] though in certain Odia literary creations, Jagannath has been treated as the ninth avatar, as a substitute for the buddha

.[6] Jagannath considered as a form of the Hindu god Vishnu, is non-sectarian

[7] and has not been associated with any particular denomination of Hinduism in entirety, though there are several common aspects with Vaishnavism, Saivism, Sh`aktism, Smartism, as well as with Buddhism and Jainism. The oldest and most famous Jagannath deity is established in puri. The temple of Jagannath in Puri is regarded as one of the Char Dham (sacred Hindu pilgrimage places) in India.
