Dear Bhaktas,

I remember coming across a mention of the divya desam in some of the paasurams of moonRam thiruvanthadi of pey alwar.
There are specific(?) mentions about Puri in this prabandham. But traditionally puri is not included in the list of 108 Divya Desams.

2282
thirukkaNdEn ponmEni kaNdEn, thikazum
arukkan aNin^iRamum kaNdEn, - serukkiLarum
ponnaazi kaNdEn *puri* sangam kaikkaNdEn,
ennaazi vaNNanpaal inRu. (2)                            1

There are a few other paasurams with the word puri.

I also heard that there is a mention in Rig Vedam about the sthala puranam of Jagannathar Koil. 

I seek inputs/clarifications from bhagavatas on this topic.

Thanks and Regards,

Adiyen Ramanuja Daasan,
