Located very close to Sri Jagannath temple, this beautiful temple does hold certain significance in the religious history of Orissa. Stories goes that the Shiva Linga in the temple was established by Lord Rama, during his journey to Lanka in search of Sita.

The most unique fact of this lingam is it remains under water throughout the year and is visible only once in a year. At present, the temple has four parts – Jagamohan (entrance temple), Vimana (main temple), Natamandap (dancing hall) and Bhogamandap (offering hall). People believe that a visit to the lingam has the power to cure any illness.

Visit the temple during SarantiSomavar Fair when the whole temple is decorated.
