  BHUVANESWAR - BHUBASINI THAKURANI MANDIR

Famous as one of the Sakti-Peethas and ardently adored as gramadevata, this Durga mats is exercising unlimited sway over the non-vegetarian community of this region. This does not bar the entry of devotees offering Satwikaahara or their soulful adoration for fulfilling desires. Strangely enough both types of devotees throng this shrine and offer prayer services round the year, according to type of vows taken.

The worshipful deity's icon is made of black granite and its craftsmanship is superb. The chiselling of facial features and embellishments are quite attractive and they inspire veneration on seeing her murti. She is seated on lion her mount and holds dreadful weapons in her hands. She was originally named Bhubasini. According to legend. she was sent by the highest divinity to rule over people from this seat. Her original name underwent a change due to phonetic corruption and so she is called Bhuasini Thakurani, the suffix Thankurani signifies her royal status.
