About Cuttack Chandi Temple

KatakaChandi Temple is popular for the major festivals of Kali Puja and Durga Puja. The idol of Maa Katak Chandi is placed at the center of the temple. Goddess Chandi has four hands and they are known as Pasa, Ankusha, Abhaya, Bara. Durga Puja is celebrated with great pomp and show here. The festival continues for 16 days beginning from the Ashtami and ends on Dushera. Thousands of devotees visit the temple during the festival to worship the goddess. People here revere Maa Katak Chandi as a Living Goddess. The architecture of the temple is splendid as the walls, main gate and the roof have majestic architecture. The temple has a historical significance as well. Legend goes that once Hansa Panda, the main priest of King Kanina, was grazing his cattle and felt tired. As he began to rest, he had a strange feeling. The same night, he dreamt of the Goddess who asked him to take her out of the land. He told his story to the king. A site was dug and an idol was found. From that day, the Goddess is being worshipped by the people. The best time to visit the KatakaChandi Temple is during the festival of Durga Puja. The Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage has approved plans for renovation of the temple. The entire temple structure will be redeveloped in the future.
