MAHADWAR

" Now begins the actual ascent. Climbing and walking about 200 yards, we come to the first Mahadwara surmounting a tall tower. It is quite imposing and multi- storied, adorned with excellent sculptural pieces on four sides. And it is from here the sheltered flight of stairs with scores of ups and downs, bends and curves begins.

Tradition bids offering prayers to the devotees in eternal prayer with burning of Karpura. Our next halt is at a mysterious big boulder.
