  BHUVANESWAR SAVITRI - MANDIR

On the Savitri Amavasya Day falling on the dark moon night of Jyeshta masa corresponding to May-June, unmanageable women folk throng this shrine, to offer special prayers for obtaining long life to their spouses just as Savitri did according to mythology. Their frenzy reaches the zenith with the recitation of vedic hymns and the traditional pujas consuming hours signifying that Hindu women are basically spiritual and that has been sustaining them since the dawn of devotion.

It is here found two more small shrines dedicated to Yama, the God of Death and another deity called Shasthy the giver of good progeny who is worshipped in the form of Linga, whereas Yama reveals as a grand statue sitting on his vehicle buffalo. The other worshipful deities found here are two Sivalingas installed in a tiny cell.

Though regular prayer is offered to Savitri the annual festival draws innumerable woman devotees requiring the help of police to regulate crowds.

As this famous shrine is in Bhuvaneswar, the capital of Orissa state all modes of conveyance is available front station and bus stand, Autos and tongas can be pressed into service also.
