Deities of Jagannath, Balaram, and Subhadra are already present in the temple. This temple was built around 1611 by Parashuram Koudi of Karmahapatra family and has been refurbished by the Jagannath haat unnayan committee and has been given a brand-new look in 2016–17.
Each year when the Punya tithi of Ratha-yatra begins then thousands of devotees gathers to seek blessings from the sacred Jagannath dev, Balaram and Subhadra. A representative of the Karmahapatra family currently the grandson named Ranajay Kar and Suvajeet Kar Mohapatra does all the holy ceremonies linked with the Snan Purnima and Rath yatra. Unlike Puri Jagannath temple, most of the ceremonies are followed here.

They stay there for a week and then return on the time of ulto rath. Before the ulto rath, the Hera Panchami celebration is being celebrated. Throughout these days, the inhabitants of Mohanpur also relish the form of a mela or social gathering. Stalls market cosmetics as well as sweet items like jilipi, goja, khasta and kathi bhaja. The Rath yatra in Mohanpur is very a large social gathering.
