Watercolour painting on paper of a shrine to Jagannath, an aspect of Visnu and Balabhadra and the goddess Subhadra. The icons are shown housed within a temple, each shown under an open arch. Rising above the temple is a tower topped with red flags. The temple is surrounded by a walled enclosure and two trees are growing behind the temple, the branches are shown emerging from behind the temples tower. Standing on either side of the temple are two priests, holding chauris (fly-whisks). They are most likely performing an offering to the deities as numerous bowls and platters of food have been placed on a table in front of the icons. The painting is surrounded by a black border.
