Balaram one of the two images which are placed on either side of the Hindiu idol Jaggerhaut (q.v.), in the temple which stands on the sea-coast of Orissa. On each side of the great idol is an image, one part of which is painted white and the other yellow. The first is said to be Shubudra, the sister of Jaggernaut, and the other that of Balaram, his brother. The image of Balaram, painted white, is set up in a few temples alone. At the worship of Jaggernaut, and also at that of Krishna, a short service is performed in the name of Balaram.
