Vedvyas Temple, Rourkela, Odisha

Vedvyas, as per the Hindu mythology, was the author of one of the most pious scriptures of the Hindus, the Mahabharata. It is him only, after the name of whom the name of the temple has been coined. Every year the temple gathers a multitude of the crowd not only from Odisha but also from other neighboring states like Chhattisgarh and Jharkhand. The holy Vedavyas temple is located on the confluence of three rivers which are Shankh, Koel and Sarasvati and all three of them combine together to form one river which is called Brahmani.

A visit to the divine temple is not merely a delightful picnic but rather an insight into the rich cultural heritage that the middle-eastern country of India has got. Shivratri Mela is the biggest festival that is celebrated in the temple with all the grand preparations. The locals near the Vedvyas temple cherish the mela with all their heart and soul.

The temperature here ranges somewhere between 25°C to 41°C in summers and between 12°C to 28°C in winters.

One of the most fascinating aspects of the Vedvyas Temple is the ancient Shiva Lingam which is basically worshipped by the Hindus. The Shiva Lingam is made of very precious and valuable Blackstone, which in today's date is very expensive.
