Maa Ramchandi Temple - Ramchandi - Konark - Puri - Odisha

Ramchandi Temple:

Ramachandi Temple, is on a beautiful place on the banks of the Kusabhadra River where it flows into the Bay of Bengal. It is only 7 km away from Konark in the Puri District of Orissa. Goddess Ramachandi, is popularly believed the presiding deity of Konark, and the most benevolent Chandi known, while others thought it to be the temple of Mayadevi, wife of Surya (Sun God).

The temple of Goddess Ramachandi on the river mouth of Kushabhadra river is a splendid scenic picnic resort. It is situated 7 km before Konark on the Marine drive road from Puri to Konark. It is certainly more ancient than the Sun Temple at Konark. From the architectural point of view, the temple of Ramachandi is not important but from the religious point of view, it is one of the famous Shakti pithas of Orissa.

A graceful Chandi, seated on a Lotus flower in a small temple half hidden by sand mounds, on the river mouth of Kushabhadra and the endless Bay of Bengal stretched to eternity, and a thick growth of Casuarina plantations around is the scenic maginificence of the place. Regular crowd of pleasure seekers both from the state, neighbouring states and distant places come here.

This is having many courageous activates like floating, sunbathing and swimming. In this river you can boat with your family. The sea water of Ramachandi is bumpy & do not build high waves because of the combine point of river and sea. If you come from Puri, the Temple placed on the right side of Marine Drive road.
