Situated around 15 kilometers east of #Bhubaneswar at Hirapur, the Chausathi Yogini temple is one of only four extant mysterious yogini temples in #India dedicated to the esoteric cult of tantra. Built in the 9th century AD, this temple is hypaethral (roofless) as it is believed that the yogini goddess would fly out and roam around at night.

The tantric rituals once believed to have been practiced in the temple no longer take place. Now, the presiding deity is a goddess called Mahamaya. She and the yoginis are worshipped in the form of goddess Durga during Dussehra and Basanti Puja. #WorldHeritageDay

On the first day of the Odia calendar and the auspicious occasion of ‘Pana Sankranti’, the 121st edition of Ekamra Walks (Old Town Circuit) #Bhubaneswar got a tremendous response with a group of seven visitors from Spanish city Barcelona and four of a family from Chapra, a city in neighboring Bihar. Researcher and journalist from Kolkata also joined in, making the occasion a memorable one while intermingling with the traditional rituals of the Old City.

While hopping the temples, religious water bodies, medicinal plant garden and last but not the least, watching the beautiful Odissi recital at Art Vision, the travelers also got some time to take a glimpse on the traditions and rituals of the Old City. The visitors also saw the grand ‘Rukuna Rath’ which takes the presiding deity of Ekamra Kshetra, Lord Lingaraj for a sojourn to Mausi Maa Temple.

While the centuries old monuments of the city remains wrapped up in time, #Bhubaneswar, an ancient city with a modern outlook, is as good as a city can get. Since the laying of its foundation stone on 13th April 1948 by Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India, to achieving the Smart city tag, until now, the city has come a long way and has been gaining recognition in various sectors worldwide. ‬‬‬‬ Together we have made our city proud on a number of occasions. This #BhubaneswarDay, lets pledge to keep up the togetherness and team work going for a bigger and better Bhubaneswar.
