KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN ORISSA

Kantilo - Nilamadhava Temple

This sacrosanct Vaishnava kshetra surprises the the fists and tourists as well by come awe-some miracles, which lab-scientists fail to arrive at. It is built atop the hills, over looking the breath-taking colourful panorama, stretching over miles and miles. The sumptuous growth of thick evergreen forests surrounding them enchant the tourists and hold out tight grip making them visit several times. And for ardent theists it is haven drawing to the lotus feet of the archamurti Nilamadhava, supposed to be the earlier form of Lord Jagannath of Puri. There are certain unique features here attributed to the mysticism manifested in the demonstration of I3hagawan's sports to emancipating the duhkartis.

In the sanctum sanctorum, there greets the eyes of the visitors the soul-lifting phenomenon of secretion of water from the feet of the icon of Nila Madhavaswamy - the presiding deity of the temple. the secretion is neither intermittent, nor once in a blur moon, but a permanent feature that enthralls the pure religionists. Moreover, the unique sight of the movement of archamurti - Lord Siddheswar from north to south in consonance with the sunrise and sunset compels ardent visitation and indispensable vision. These phenomena have been in vogue and continuing uninterruptedly over centuries. Hence great attraction for the theists.

Its location on high eminence-is its added star-attraction for the picnickers, who fill their eyes and minds with scenic beauty, and evergreen memories, but return with souls in their former vacant state. It is standing on the right bank of river Mahanadi.

It lies 100 km off Bhuvaneswar and accessible by four wheelers.
