Lord Alarnath temple is situated in Brahmagiri. The temple is just around 25 km from Lord Jagannath Temple, Puri odisha. When the public darshan of the Lord Jagannath in the main temple at Puri remain closed for a fortnight for Anavasara, lakhs of devotees visit to the Alarnath temple at Brahmagiri.

It is a small temple. Lord Alarnath is a four-armed Vishnu deity with Sankha, Chakra, Gadha and Padma.
