HENB | Balasore | Nov 17, 2015:: A new temple is in the offing for Lord Bhusandeswar at Kumbhiragadi village under Bhograi block in the district of Balasore in Orissa. The old temple, which houses the largest Shiva ‘linga’ in Asia, was damaged in the tidal surge a few years back.

A team of Government officials including chairman of State Temple Construction Committee GC Mitra, archeologist Bijay Kumar Rath and sculptor Raghunath Mohapatra inspected the old temple on Sunday to prepare a design of the new structure. Mohapatra said as the new temple will be built close to Subarnarekha river and is exposed to saline wind, it will have to be constructed in sandstone for longevity.

The team members, who took measurement of the ‘linga’, decided that it would be shifted to a place near the temple till the construction is complete.

Carved out of black granite, the Shiva ‘linga’ is 12 feet six inches in height and 12 feet in diameter. While six feet of the ‘linga’ is visible above the ground, the rest lies beneath.

Hindus of the locality of Bhograi and adjacent places have been demanding a new temple to accommodate the largest Shiva Linga in Asia to facilitate the puja rituals by the large section of Hindu devotees usually  come to their deity at Bhusandeswar throughout the year.

Hindus of Bhograi are demanding a pilgrimage shelter house at Bhusandeswar Shiva Kshetra and claiming a declaration of a Heritage Pilgrimage site at  Bhusandeswar.

    “OM! O Shiva!

    “OM! O Shiva! We worship and adore you, O three-eyed one, You are sweet gladness, the fragrance of life, who nourishes us, restores our health, and causes us to thrive. As, in due time, the stem of the cucumber weakens, and the gourd is freed from the vine, so free us from attachment and death, and do not withhold immortality.”

    A scholar Upananda Brahmachari explains- (Hindu ExistenceJuly 14, 2012) ‘As per Hindu realization (one may degenerate it by calling it Hindu mythology) with a subtle scientific approach, Lord Shiva (Nataraja) is described as Devadideva, the primordial god of all gods, the supreme creator and the Mahadeva, the greatest god, the supreme source of energy. Shiva is the cosmic dancer who performs his divine dance to destroy a weary universe and make preparations for god Brahma to start the process of creation afresh. This new creation is harmonized and preserved by god Vishnu, obviously by the force of trinity in the singularized and unique entity originated from that Devadideva or Mahadeva. Lord Shiva, the Grand Designer. Lord Mahakal. Shiva is dancing in an aureole of flames with a rhythm of time infinite so beautifully, lifting his left leg and balancing over a demon or dwarf (Apasmara) who symbolizes ignorance and evils. OM Namah Shiva. It means adorn all endeavors in the light of truth, prosperity and maturity’.
    Thank you
