Chandaneswar

A drive of 90 km to the North of Balasore takes us to the holy shrine of Lord Chandaneswar, a religious center for the people of not only the district of Balasore, but also of the adjacent places. Here hundreds of devotees flock everyday. Even the festival occasions like Nila Shasti, Shiva Ratri and the famous Chadak Jatra pulls in a lot of crowd. Sajanagarh is a place that was serving as a military base during the period of ex-rulers of Nilgiri state. It is a religious centre. The magnificent 14 th century A.D temple of Bhadra Chandi is one of the most frequently visited religious places and it is also the main attraction of the place. On the walls of both temple and boundary beautiful stone works of legendry Gods and Goddess have been made.
