In this episode of The Atlas Obscura Podcast, we collaborate with our friends at Science Diction, where we explore the Indian temple complex that gave rise to the word “juggernaut,” meaning an unstoppable force. But the real story behind it is far more complicated.

Our podcast is an audio guide to the world’s wondrous, awe-inspiring, strange places. In under 15 minutes, we’ll take you to an incredible site, and along the way you’ll meet some fascinating people and hear their stories. Join us daily, Monday through Thursday, to explore a new wonder with cofounder Dylan Thuras and a neighborhood of Atlas Obscura reporters.
