SARAIKELLA - MAPAUDI SHRINE 

Ever heard of a deity becoming exceedingly popular and ardently worshipped without ever seen by the adorers, ever heard of an omnipotent goddess volunteering the maintenance of security personnel-keeping guard of the adorable gods without requistioned; ever heard of a deity confining herself to a prinely chamber walls at the verdict of the votaries; ever heard of a deity becoming the bone of contention between two ruling princes, and the devout ruler seeking the mediation of a British officers to restore it from his enemy, ever heard of a king keeping a best steed for the nocturnal ride of a deity, ever he of a deity unifying people of a particular region, torn by racial jealousies and political intrigues, ever heard of a deity imploring the services of common men to take her to a certain Raja to providing her food: ever heard of a formidable battalion under the command of a British Officer, storming a fort to get an icon but duped by the besieged ruler by surrendering a fake Idol and ever heard of a father sending his adopted boy to steal the icon from the palace of his natural father and murder him if detected? Though negatives alone dart, there is one answering all the afores aid at Saraikella in Bihar.
