Talmul is a village situated at about 22.5 km from Angul. It is situated at about 2 km North to Mahidharpur, which is on the Angul-Hindol road. There is a temple here dedicated to Mahisasura Mardini, a form of Goddess Durga. The deity of the temple seems to have life and it exhibits wonderful specimens of plastic art. The local people here hold a great honour for this Goddess. Even though the temple is not very large in dimension, still one cannot help admiring the architectural skills. A ‘Mukhasala’ is attached to its front, which has a roof supported by pillars. The height of the temple is raised by the temple and Mukhasala that has been constructed on a raised platform.
