Situated at a beautiful hillock of the Balasor district of Odissa the Panchlingaswar temple not only have the religious significance to locals people this scenic temple also attracts thousands of tourists every week. This place got its name from the five Siva Linga of the temple. the lingas are located inside a waterfall and most of the time its remain submerged inside water. One had to bend down to touch the Shiva-lingas. Panchalingeswar is 27.7 km southwest from Balasore In order to reach there you need to take a bus from Balasore station and get down at Nilgiri stop. Or you can just reserve a car or auto for the trip.
next, you can also visit Lord Jagannath temple and Jamidar's house and take a small trek in the green Nilgiri hill nearby to Panchlingeswar temple. Which for us is very enjoyable. If you are looking for a weekend destination near Kolkata or Bhubanewasr this place is definitely worth visiting.
