Good temple but badly maintained. The temple tank is covered with green algae. Cleanliness to be improved.
a tipical odisha temple with Goddess gowri. peaceful place.
This place is the most peaceful place I felt personally. If some one visits this place after a whole long day of tiering job will not be disappointed and rather there heart will feel relaxed by the divine beauty and peace of this place. And along with that the serenity of god can also be felt truly by heart.
