MAHANANDI

The Tirtha of the temple is famous for its curative properties, and it contains warm or tepid mineral water right through the year. The main Tirtha is in front of the Mukhamantapa of the Lord's temple. It is a sixty feet square tank with a mantapa in the centre. The inlets and outlets of the tank are so arranged that the depth of the water be constantly kept only at five feet, thus enabling all pilgrims to have a plunge. The source of supply of water to this tank has not been traced up to now. The water is seen flowing into the tank through some inlets that have been built. But their exact location is still a matter of doubt. The five springs from out of which the Tirtha is supplied with water are called Srisaila- dhara, Narasimhadhara, Daivodhinidhara, Nanditirtha and Kailasatirtha. The water is crystalline pure and is ever tepid.
