The word 'Mohini' recalls to mind two most unforgettable episodes and enthrall the listeners and readers with the monumental role she played on two significant events. She is an engrossing piece of beauty that made the heads of the highest gods too reel leave alone a witless demon Bhasmasura. Her exterior dazzle and hypnotizing giggle brought signal achievements which the mightiest weapons could not achieve. She captivated the heart of Maheswara and became his partner for a while. Who was she? "I Wasn't she Srimannarayana's assumed form for a purpose noble, and time critical. Hence offering of worship in a separate mandir by ardent devotees. Though the temples for her are not many, the existing ones draw heavy crowds and are catering to the votaries emotional satisfaction. This unique temple is found in Bhuvaneswar and is lying on the bank of the hallowed Bind Sarovar.

The story goes that one Brahmin developed extreme and uncontrollable devotion for this form of Sri Mahavishnu and started worshipping her. Providentially those who emulated him in exhibition of achanchala bhakti were lifted and they reaped ethereal bliss. None complained of problems barring him if he soulfully prayed here. So soon the number mounted.
