The Ancient Indian Holy City of PURUshottam Kshetra is now Known as Jagannath PURI
The linguistic root for BODY / HOUSE / TEMPLE / TOWN/ CITY / Realm is the P / B / V / U or Y / I + R / L. R and L are also interchangeable due to sound-shifting. Thus for the most ancient House / Temple or City words we see PR in Egypt “PER”, Greek POL (NOT POLIS, which appears to be derived from POLIEUS ), English BURY and Sanskrit PUR (PURA, PURI). UUR, YIR, PER and IR are also found in ancient Semitic Lands.
This is the theology: The Presiding Form of the Lord in ANY Vishnu Temple is its VASTU-PUR-USHA. Every place of Sri Krishna’s Pastimes is called a PURA, except Goloka Vrindavan! Thus Sri Krishna is actually worshiped in ROYal RAYA / RAJA awe and reverence EVERYWHERE as the Vastu PUR-USHA, the Presiding Form of the Supreme Atum / ATMAN in that VASTU, Greek ASTU/Y. The Greeks called the Presiding Spirit of the Lord in any sacred location / loka, its POLIEUS or POLIAS. POLIS appears, like POLICE, ‘City Protector’ to be derived from POLIEUS. In Egypt this SAME DEITY was called the AUSU Presiding Spirit (ATUM / ATMAN ) of the PER, or PER-AUSU / PURUSHA.
Everywhere EXCEPT in His Highest Paradise of Goloka Vrindavana, Sri Krishna-Vishnu is worshiped in ROYal splendor. Only in His Paradisical Highest Abode, and in His Divine Love “Mysteries”, is He to be worshiped as a simple Kouros ‘Farm Boy’ and ‘Lover of the Soul’. All other places of Sri Krishna-Vishnu’s ROYal pastimes are called PURA.
Thus the Greek Religio-Political Term POL, (translated as in Roman ‘Civic’), the Hebrew Biblical PR / YIR / IR, the Sanskrit PURA and Egyptian PER Cities were ALL dedicated to the worship of VASU-Deva, the North Egyptian AUSU / Osiris, South Egyptian Theban WASU, and Jewish YAHU. The Egyptian sacred PER Cities dedicated to Forms of AUSU / AUSAR / OSIRIS, were from age-to-age members of Afro-Heleno-Semitic Asyla Federations or religio-political Alliances or Leagues of Free City-States. Countless kinds and examples of evidence for these Alliances are still existant, and solidly tie these ancient groups of Krishna-Vishnu PUR-USHA / POLIEUS / PER-AUSU Worshipers together!
Of course POLIS IS related to PURI! Just as the Greek Deity Name POLIEUS is a compound of the ‘city’ word POL and the MASCULINE ‘BEING’ DEITY NAME, PUR-USHA is a compound of the Sanskrit PUR city word and the MASCULINE DEITY NAME USH / AS / VAS / VISH etc. the Name of the All-Pervasive Soul of the Universe!
