Siddha Bhairavi Temple

Siddha Bhairavi Temple is located at Mantridi in the Ganjam district of Odisha, India. The presiding Goddess is Bhairavi. Carved in a raw fashion, the statue has a leg and four hands. The idol is said to have been excavated from a plowed field. Thus a new temple was installed in 1937. Here every month good wishes are given on all Sankranti days and Tuesdays.
Temples have 108 sub-shrines dedicated to all the Hindu gods from Kashmir to Kanyakumari like the 12 jyotirlingas, Dashavatara, Vaishno Devi, Venkateswara, Ranganatha, Meenakshi, Badrinath. There is also a big temple in which Lord Jagannath lives with his brothers and sisters. It is believed that at the end of the kali yuga Bhairavi will come with the avatar of Kalki to restore the goddess dharma.

The temple is located on National Highway 16, about 18 kilometers (11 mi) from Berhampur. The nearest railway station from the temple is Berhampur Railway Station.
