The Aswadwara (Jnana) or Southern Gateway opens to a flight of 10 steps leading to the inner entrance. It is believed that this gateway is the path of Gods and Goddess. TThe Aswadwara or the Horse Gate has on each side a galloping stallion of masonry work with the figures of Jagannath and Balabhadra on their back in full military array. These sculptures depict the legendary Kanchi expedition of Jagannath and Balabhadra . The images of Sadhabhuja Gouranga, Ramachandra, Gopala, Barabhai Hanuman and Nrusingha have been installed in small shrines in the outer enclosure. Towards the eastern direction of it is the kitchen of Shri Jagannath which can feed thousands of people at a time. The process of cooking done in the kitchen has some peculiarities. In the same oven wide earthen pots are placed and cooking is done simultaneously. There are 200 hearths in the kitchen and 400 supakars work here daily. The present kitchen building dates from the reign of Divyasingha Deva (A.D. 1690-1713) and was built by a private person. The colossal image of Mahabir Hanuman is installed outside the temple enclosure to the east of Aswadwara.
