📍 Matamatha,puri

1/ The Mata Math is located at short distance of about 2 KMs from Swargadwar Road, Puri, Odisha. The road doesn’t have any name and is also very rough. We went by rickshaw reserving that. We just heard from someone and decided to visit. Just before reaching - ImageImage
2/ the Math the rickshaw took us to temple as he did not know the exact location. The temple has idol of Goddess Kali. We offered puja. From there Mata Math was at little distance. When we reached the Math the main temple was closed. A man was giving Prasadam and we took that. - ImageImage
3/ We came to know that the main temple is about 150 years old. But a devotee of Mata decorated the surroundings. While walking we were astonished to view the numerous colossal idols of deities. We have taken photos of many deities. The walk through was enjoyable. Many swans - ImageImage

On the auspicious occasion of #SnanaPurnima in Jyestha month. I bow in love and reverence to the 9th Avatar of Lord Vishnu #JaiJagannath #SnanaYatra #Puri

The 9th Avatar of Vishnu is Lord Jagannath himself and not Buddha.

Please allow me tell you the story. 1/n
Do you know why Lord Krishna told Bhagavad Gita to Arjuna ... not just to help him in the Mahabharata war but he imparted it for the people of upcoming yuga i.e Kali Yuga coz he knew the challenges that lay ahead.

With the end of the Mahabharat war Dwapara Yuga ended too.

Krishna knew the eventuality. He knew Gandhari’s curse on him would come into effect soon. (She cursed him with the destruction of his clan for his refusal to disclose the truth of Karna’s ancestry to Suyodhana and prevent the Mahabharat war)

"What's in a name? that which we call a rose, by any other name would smell as sweet."
Yet, this seems very interesting as how the names of the districts of Odisha originated !
#districtsofodisha #Odisha
Probably derived from Anugola which is Anu+Gola. A battle or plot (Gola) was devised by the King of Odisha against the last rebellious Kandha chieftain Anu, who refused to acknowledge the King's suzerainty and pay the tributes. (L.S.S.O' Malley)
#districtsofodisha #Odisha
According to tradition, Balangir
town was established by Balaram Deo, the brother of Narasimha Deo. The
town being founded by Balaram Deo was earlier known as Balaramgarh
from which the name Balangir has been derived.
