KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ORISSA

Satyabadi - Sakhigopal Mandir

Lying mid-way between the two highly popular and greatly venerated kshetras - Puri Jagannath on one side, and Bhuvaneswar Lingaraj temple on the other, this small but significant sublime Krishna kshetra is holding out special attraction for reasons more than one. The widespread belief current in these parts is, that visit to Purushothama kshetra - Puri is incomplete without darsan of this Lord Krishna, popular as Sakhigopal or Sakshigopal. He is infinitely merciful to the pious adorers and ruthlessly cruel to the unrighteous people. He spares not the Gars indulging in wanton deceit, perjury, fraud, hypocrisy etc. Imposters dare not enter this shrine to swear openly in the august presence of this Dharmaprabhu, and if done they would soon meet dire consequences, says the sthalagna volubly. Another! yearly once only the holy feet of Sri Radha are exposed to public view. The temple is quite decent and does not bear marks of ostentation in any aspect, like sculptural adornment or vast dimensions. The charming icon of archamurti in standing posture decorated with garlands and jewels casts a spell on the on-lookers and wrings veneration. Almost all the yatris, either on their way to or from Puri visit this little, but great temple for chastening their fife.

It lies 40 km off Bhuvaneswar, the capital of Orissa, accessible by four wheelers.
