500-year-old temple, submerged in river Mahanadi,


NEW DELHI, 13 JUNE. A 500-year-old temple, which was submerged in river Mahanadi long ago, has been found in Odisha’s Nayagarh district.

The ancient temple is believed to be dedicated to Lord Vishnu. The top of the submerged temple was discovered mid-river near Baideswar in the Padmavati village near Nayagarh. The 60-feet-long temple, which belongs to Lord Gopinath, dates back to late 15th or early 16th century. It was built using the Mastaka style of construction. The place where the temple was found was regarded as ‘Satapatana’. Padmabati village was part of Satapatana which is a combination of seven villages. The entire village was submerged as the river changed its course due to flooding some 150 years back. The local villagers claim that there are around 22 temples in the area which are submerged but only ‘mastaka’ of the ancient temple was visible for some years as it was the tallest. The ‘mastaka’ of the ancient temple was spotted nearly 11 years back.
