Bhadrakali Famous Temple For Goddess ,Bhadrak #Odisha #Temple
One of the famous temple of Goddess Bhadrakali is located in the outskirts of the revenue village Aharapada which is at a distance of 8 kms away from Bhadrak town in the south- west direction.The premier Deity Durga being born out of yagna fire has assumed the name of Bhadrakali and has blessed the region. The presence of Sri Jagannath (the last incarnation of Krishna) in the same platform marks the peaceful coexistence of the place.When we try to reconstruct the glorious cultural heritage of the district the very first thing that strikes our mind is the name of Goddess Mahakali from Meghasani (origin of the river Salandi) to Bhadrakali, the daughter of Salandi – Presiding Deity of the region – Mahamaya Bhadrakali .
