  • It's an another temple by Hindu raja , the follower of lord Shiva. Art work is as usual as orisha art, small temple wall paint is good . There is a puskar in the heart of the temple bhumi, it's a gouri temple , Devi's temple this fact is quite interesting in history of orisha temple art and architecture.
  • One of the oldest temple of 11th century of lord Shiva and gouri ..... Beautiful temple , a pond with colour full fishes & tortoises
  • Beautiful Odishan architecture. Peaceful place.
  • There lived a couple named Kedar (male) and Gouri (female). They loved each other and decided to marry. The society was against the union, so it led them to flee from village. During the journey Gouri felt hungry, so Kedar went for food and was killed by a tiger. Later Gouri hearing this at this place jumped into the pond. The king of Utkal, Lalatendu Keshari, knowing this raised a temple named Kedareshawr or Kedargouri Temple. Still lovers come here to pray for a happy wedlock without any obstacles. The pond here is said to have some medicinal property.
  • A superb temple reflecting the heritage and architecture of Old Kalinga dynasty.
