We all know about Raghurajpur, the craft village. But we cross this Temple on our right while moving to reach Raghurajpur.
This temple is dedicated to Mahadeba known as Shri Kapateswara . This is the second place enlisted in in Shankhakhetra after river Bhargabi while entering Puri from this side.
The urge to visit all the places of Shankhakhetra forced us to visit this place too. Locally this temple is known as Kapteswar. Narrow road leads to this temple.
The Temple has a big pond. We could feel the positive energy. A small well, a yagnya mandapa and a roshaghara is surrounded by a courtyard. The priest of the Temple was kind enough to perform the Puja for us and discussed how the temple submerged during rainy season.
