About Chausath Yogini Temple in Bhubaneswar

Chausath Yogini Temple is a religious place of attraction in Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha. It is located at Hirapur, at a distance of 10 km from Bhubaneswar Railway Station and Biju Patnaik International Airport. It is a Hindu temple, which is dedicated to the 64 avatars of Goddess Durga. According to the local priests of the temple, it is believed that Goddess Durga took up the form of 64 demi-goddesses to defeat a demon. After the defeat, they asked Goddess Durga to commemorate them. Hence, a temple was constructed in its physical form to honour these 64 goddesses (yoginis). Chausath Yogini Temple is also revered as the only active temple out of all the four Chausath Yogini temples surviving in India.

Chausath Yogini Temple, also known as Mahamaya Temple, is supposed to be built by Queen Hiradevi of Bhauma dynasty during the 9th century. It is the smallest among the other Yogini temples in India with a diameter of thirty feet and a height of eight feet. The architectural style of the temple is circular while the material used for its construction is sandstone. It is believed that the Yogini traditions are tantric in nature which is associated with the rural and tribal traditions in India. The presiding deity of the temple is Mahamaya who is seen to be adorned in a red cloth and vermilion. There are 60 niches present in the walls of the temple where each one represent the Yogini statue.The central pillar, also known as Chandi Mandap, is adorned by three yoginis with four Bhairavas while the other three are sculpted in sitting posture and one in standing, known as Ekapada Bhairav.

One of the most intriguing things about the statues of the yoginis sculpted inside the Chausath Yogini Temple is that they are exceptionally beautiful figures carved with exquisite features in their aesthetically framed bodies. The statues of all the 64 yoginis are shows to be adorned with necklaces, garlands, armlets, bangles, anklets, earrings and other ornaments. While some have portrayed as huntresses with bows and arrows, others are built showing balancing trick on a pair of wheels, or playing a drum. The 64 yoginis are worshipped equally by the locals as well as by the people who visit here.

    Kanav M

    Delhi

    Kanav's 4 days trip to Bhubaneswar

    The trip was well organised by the travel agent before the start of the trip and she politely customised the trip as per requirements and comfort level. 1. The hotels were quite good, especially stay at Toshali sands in puri was the highlight of this trip. 2. The taxi provided was comfortable but the driver was not well informed. 3. The travel agent was available throughout the trip and willingly responded to all the queries. Some of the major drawbacks are listed below : 1. The hotels were changed after the trip started which was unwanted and to the great discomfort of the travellers, they were repeatedly shifted to new place every morning. 2. There was no tour guide throughout the trip and my parents had to plan the trip on their own since the driver was not well informed. 3. The hotel room provided in Holiday Hotel in puri was standard even though a deluxe room was booked as per the itinerary. 4. Poor management and miscommunication by the travel agent with the hotel management regarding hotel rooms and complementary lunch/dinner led to lot of confusion and repeated intervention on my side. This should have been arranged in advance by the tour guide. The travel agent accepted their mistake and hope they provide better services hereafter.
