Bagadevi Shaktipitha of Ganjam

Through this article, I want to provide some basic information regarding the shaktipitha of Ganjam Goddess Bagadevi, beauty of the place and how to reach. For details see the information provided in the description below.

Introduction of the Place Bagadevi

Known as Shakti Pitha of Ganjam, Bagdevi is situated at Kulada of Bhanjanagar sub-division. It is also alleged that Bagdevi is the prime goddess of Bhanja King. She was established as Protective Goddess of the fort of Bhanja King in 1200 AD. The presence of ruined fort in the west of Kulada garh and river Mahanadi in the east makes the place more interesting. Kulada is also known as the birth place of the great Poet King Upendra Bhanja.

Attractions of the place Bagadevi

The place is known for its natural beauty of lush green forest, small small hills and river Mahanadi. The presence of historical ruin fort adds to the beauty of the place.

The temple is another attraction of the place. The original temple is situated sculpture
at the top of the hill, popularly known as 'Upper Bagadevi'. There are no steps to reach there, and the way is full of stones makes it almost unreachable. By looking to the arrival of lot of devotees, another temple was built at the feet of the hill to keep their interest. The lower Bagadevi is allegedly known as the Saraswat Incarnation of Upper Bagadevi. Because of it, Pasubali is denied here.

The Thakurani Yatra organized once in every three years here attracts more and more people to this place. Apart from this, many nearby people are visiting this place on the day Sankaranti every month.

This place is also a picnic spot for the picnic lovers. They like to do picnic here because of the presence of big trees near and around here and river Mahanadi.

How to reach the place Bagadevi

One can reach here by both bus and train.
The nearest railway station is Berhampur railway station, which is just 80 Km away.
Bus facilities is available from almost all places to Bhanjanagar, which is just 5 Km away from Kulada.
