sort of taking oath is in practice in the Sakshi Gopal mandir lying near Konark
temple in the state of Orissa, It lies midway between the world renowned
temple-Konark and Puri. For the very same offence of falsehood, the parties- the
accuser and the accused have to stand before that formidable presiding deity and
take oath. The dishonest never goes Scot free; he reaps retribution sooner or
later. This has ushered in Dharma in the region; for the dishonest are terribly
scared of the consequences, if the honest man drags him to that Satyapith, the
Gopal mandir. So, here and there, there were some unofficial seats of Justice
that administered Justice and people abided by their .verdict. Would that Golden
Age ever be reestablished ?
: The temple lies in a small village, on the way to Konark from Puri, Orissa and
is accessible by four wheelers.
