Ghanteshwari Temple

Maa Ghanteshwari temple is currently located in Chiplima, Odisha, India, 30 kilometers from Sambalpur via NH 6. A bridge (called the Chaurpur bridge) is being built at Mundoghat, a strategically important location between Sambalpur and Chiplima. It is fully operational as of December 2018. The distance between Maa Ghanteswari Temple and Sambalpur has been cut in half. There are bells everywhere, as the name implies. Following the fulfillment of their wishes, people offer bells to the goddess Ghanteswari, also known as the Deity of Bells. The temple attracts pilgrims from all over the state. It is known as the ‘lighthouse without light,’ as it was built by early mariners to act as a warning against strong winds. A large number of little bells hung all around adds to the significance of this location.
Maa Ghanteshwari Temple is located on the bank of the Mahanadi River, 33 kilometers (21 miles) southwest of the district capital Sambalpur. The Chipilima Hydro Powerplant (CHEP) is located on the same riverbank as the temple.
