As per Annirudh Das, the first Jagannath divinity was affected by Jainism and is in all honesty the Jina of Kalinga taken to Magadha by Mahapadma Nanda. The hypothesis of Jain beginnings is upheld by the Jain Hathigumpha engraving. It specifies the love of a relic commemoration in Khandagiri-Udayagiri, on the Kumara slope. This area is expressed to be same as the Jagannath sanctuary site. In any case, states Starza, a Jain text makes reference to the Jagannath hallowed place was reestablished by Jains, however the legitimacy and date of this text is unclear. This is the tuft for Oriya individuals to commend a unique day in this Dham which is known as Ratha Yatra ("Chariot Festival").
