    My wife and I once spent winter in Jagannath Puri, a beach town on the east Indian coast, home to the famous Jagannath temple, aka Sri Mandir. Not even Wikipedia knows exactly how long Jagannath has been worshiped in Puri, but the most recent temple there was built in the eleventh century. There's some history there. It's our favorite place of pilgrimage. It's also a booming, Jagannath-conscious tourist trap. People come from all over India for the Sea Beach air, conch shell souvenirs, t-...
