“BABA DHABALESWAR PITHA”

The temple is situated at a distance of 27 kilometres from Cuttack, Odisha. It is situated in an island, on the Mahanadi River. The suspension bridge that connects the temple with the city is also one of the major attractions of this place. The hanging bridge is about 245 feet long. Which helps the devotees to do their rituals and worship.

According to some sayings, this place was a dense forest. A white coloured cow used to stand below the Grove of Jasmine (Malati) flowers. Milk used to flow automatically from the cows teat. And this news reached the king of Keshari Dynasty at that time. After this incident the place was dug and it was found that a “Jyotir Ling” (Lord Shiva) was pre-existing under the ground. The king constructed a temple and established the “Jyotir Ling”.
