Swetaganga is a small sacred tank situated to the west of the Jagannath Temple in Puri. On the bank of this pond are two small temples, dedicated to Sweta Madhava and Matsya Madhava.

While taking holy bath in ‘Panchathirthas’ (five sacred ponds), devotees also come here for ablution. It is believed that there is an internal connection between Swetaganga and the river Ganges.
