Travel Talk

The temple that had seen numerous rulers bow their heads in prayer was destroyed and forgotten for a short period of time. It was restored by the Bhanj dynasty ruler Maharaja Purna Chandra Bhanj Deo and his brother Pratap Chandra Bhanj Deo in 1925. A museum near the temple holds several artifacts and idols that were found during the restoration efforts. The best time to visit would be during Shiva ratri as the festival sees a seven day celebration in Khiching.
