UCHAITHA

On the other side of the river, towards the south-east of the temple, is the site of what is believed to be the pathshala of Kalidasa. In local dialect and survey records it is mentioned as Kaildasko Chaupdi i.e., the college of Kalidasa. Chaupdi is derived from the Sanskrit word Chatushpathi i.e., where the four Vedas are read and taught. It is an elevated piece of ground measuring about one bigha in area.

So far as the architecture is concerned, the temple is reconstructed in the Indo-Aryan style. There is a square cella for the image. It is curvilinear and there is no trace of storeys and the massive circular coping stone i.e., amalaka, on which the kalasa has been put, surmounts it.

The priests of the temple are of the Vaishnava sect. The temple is their ancestral property. It is not under any trust. About 300 visitors come to offer prayer daily. Ladies of the locality bring pitha (made of flour) and milk to offer to the goddess on the occasion of Vijaya- dashami.
