The name 'Savitri' conjures up a terrific scene of confrontation between a fragile piece of feminine mortal figure and the fiercest looking tall stalwart celestial being who alas was out-vetted and so rained boons out of proportion. The mythology of Savithri and Satyavan is so popular and every Hindu virgin prays and vows to becoming a prototype of that noble lady whose chastity won laurels to womanhood. Her steadfast devotion to her husband not only breathed life into his dead body, but got back kingdom to her father-in-law and many more. She turned the ideal of every Hindu woman and stands as a touch stone of untainted purity. So humanity erected shrines in maw places and installed her statue to offering daily.

One such shrine is found in Bhuvaneswar, the metropolitan capital of Orissa. It lies to the southern side of Lingaraj temple, the crest jewel of Orissa temples. Here the odditv that greets the theists and tourists is the Linga symbolising Savitri instead of icon of any shape or size. So Linga is not monopolised by Maheswar and at places like Alampur Brahma is worshipped in the form of Linga etc. Here the Linga standing for Savitri is receiving unparalleled devotion by thousands and thousands of women.
