Thimithi – The Fire-Walking Festival of Tamil Nadu!

Mohangiri, Kalahandi


Mohangiri is a quaint village in Kalahandi which comes under the places of interest for tourists for the Shiva Temple. A stream named Kali Ganga flows close to the village. On the bank of this stream lies the ruin of the ancient Shiva Temple with eleven pillars of Jagmohan Hall. Though the temple has been reconstructed, the old remnants which dates back to 600 AD could still be found inside the temple.

Many rock-cut sculptures have been carved out on the body of the temple along with the many stone blocks of this ancient collapsed temple makes the temple worthy for visiting. A Shiva Linga has been unearthed along with the temple which is now been placed inside a hut for worshipping. The temple is a unique combination of the present period and the olden times.
