Panchalingeshwar Temple is in Balasore district of Odisha. It named after the five Shivalinga that are enshrined inside. The temple is on top of a hillock near the Nilagiri hill (not to be confused with that of Western Ghats).The Shivalingas are said to have been enshrined by Sita, the wife of Lord Rama during their exile.
Another story holds that King Banasura worshiped the Swayambhu Lingas at this place given its beauty. A perennial stream, which is the main attraction of the area, regularly washes the Shivalingas as it flows over them. To reach to the temple one has to lie flat on the rock parallel to the stream to touch and worship the lingas inside the water stream.
This Is 40 k.m distance from Arpita Beach Resort.
Visited Arpita Beach Resort, Chandipur in March 2016 during Holi. Nice Hotel with comfortable rooms, excellent staffs, clean bathrooms and good restaurant. They had a superb room service. Five minutes walk from the beach.
Got a good deal from go ibibo. Executive rooms were great. Food was decent. Hotel is a bit far from main beach, but there is a beach near hotel backside. Overall good stay. Go for executive rooms as they are pretty big & comfortable.
