  KAKATAPUR - MANGALA TEMPLE

The annual festival 'Jhamu Yatra' celebrated in April-May lures huge crowds on account of some bizarre customs During the festival, devout worshippers walk over a narrow trench of burning charcoals with such great ease and grace that tempt even the casual visitors too participate in it with bubbling enthusiasm. Neither do they complain of scorching efforts, nor make retreat half way through. It is all Mother's mahima; they aver. As it is the star attraction the place throbs with exuberant festivity and rollicking joy. Special devotional programmes with colour and sound turns this into Bhulokaswarga. Moreover, situated in the valley of Prachi affording colourful spectacles of Nature in full bloom, its enchantment on the fun-loving youth is great and it is another plus point for visitation. The temple owns a very big bell with  some inscription, the acquisition of it shrouded in mystery. It is a visit-worthy shrine.

It lies near Puri accessible by bus and train.
