States Odisha Pilgrimage Ghanteswari Temple

Ghanteswari Temple Odisha

There is not a feeling as blissful as that of reveling in the chimes at the Temple of Bells, Maa Ghanteswari Temple. Seated in the city of Sambalpur, this temple is visited time and again by pilgrims who come and offer wish fulfilling bells to the Goddess Ghanteswari. Moreover, this temple on the fringes of Mahanadi River is adorned with bells which in the yesteryears used to serve as a guide for the sailors. And that’s the reason why this temple is honoured with the name of 'lighthouse without light'. Over time, the area around the temple is made safer with the construction of the Hirakud Dam and the Chiplima Hydro Power plant in its vicinity.
