  • Maa Tarini is one of the shakti peeth (Goddess of power) and the chief introductory goddess of odisha culture.No one has come empty handed from Maa’s temple. Maa has always answered the prayers of her devotees. Maa’s has given each one of them what they deserve to get. Maa needs nothing from her devotees except few things like dedication, pureness and love. There is a good road network connecting Ghategaon from different places within the state. Must visit place ❤️ The vibe, the atmosphere, surrounding, I love everything about this place.
