Narendra Tank

The Narendra Tank, situated at Mauza Dandimala Sahi, is one of the largest tanks of Orissa, built around the 15th century. Also known as 'Chandana Pushkarini,' the famous Chandana Yatra of Lord Jagannath is celebrated annually at this tank. The holy tank is surrounded by several big and small shrines. The water level of the tank with 16 'ghatas'(bathing places), is about 10 feet below the present road level. The main ghata has a flight of steps made of Khondalite leading to it. There is an island in the center of the lake, with a small temple called Chandana mandapa connected to the south bank with a bridge. This largest tank of Puri is 2 km from Jagannath Temple.
