Madhava Temple

Madhava Temple

Madhava Temple, Visit Madhava Temple of Orissa, Temple tour of Madhava Temple, Religious place of OrissaLocation : 6-kms from Niali, Cuttack District, Orissa
Dates Back : 13th Century A.D.
Presiding Deity : Madhava Or Lord Vishnu
Also Known As : Durgamadhava

The famous Madhava temple is situated on the eastern bank of the Prachi River, about 6-kms from Niali. The area between Niali and Madhava appears to have been the principal centre of the Madhava (four-armed Vishnu) cult in Orissa, made well-known in Sri Jayadeva's Gita Govinda.

The temple is also sometimes referred to as "Durgamadhava" because of the presence of a small 'Durga' image next to Madhava within the sanctum.

This joint worship of Durga and Madhava is unique to Orissan 'Vaishnavism', and is yet, another testament of the great Orissan process of synthesis. Madhava is a temple in dynamic worship, and, in fact, draws a large number of pilgrims from all over Orissa.
