BHUVANESWAR
The Hari-Hara Kshetra

ANTIQUITY - POURANIC EVIDENCE

Puranas recount that Lord Siva, the presiding deity of Varanasi, once had a problem to face with. He was irked at the prevalence of atheism and the unethical activities of its protagonists. Discerning the signs of incalculable harm approaching fast his votaries with its rapid progress, he grew restless and finally decided to quit Kasi and move to a safer place for a short period at least. While pondering over, it was suggested that the ever green mango groves of Utkal, sacred to Sri Maha Vishnu was desirable and conducive to Him in all respects. And the Lord has been abiding there since the beginning in his ethereal form.

When approached the presiding deity - Mahavishnu for refuge, He agreed to share it with him, on condition that Shiva should not leave it at any time.
