Description: Dedicated to Bhuweneshwari, sister of Lord Vishnu, this temple is believed to be the holy abode of Jagannathi Devi.

According to legends, it is believed that once two girls were dancing on the tune of a shepherd boy’s flute. The boy caught hold of one of the girls and this was when goddess Bhuweneshwari revealed her true identity. The goddess agreed to stay in the village and thus the temple was constructed for her.
