A real place where lord Shiva stays, roaring fountain, hilltop, windy sunset time its mesmerising. Panchalingeswar takes 1 hr by road from Chandipur. It comes within the local sight seeing destinations.

"A good picnic spot"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
As its name suggest this place has 5 Shivlings inside the river, it is a very good place to explore. Beside the Shivlings it has a place from where water comes out always. It has jungle, river and a temple also, it is a very good picnic spot, the idle time to visit here will be in winters. Peoples there are very helpful, you should climb the hill if you can and don't forget to take a camera.

"A nice place for a weekend trip"

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted Sep 15, 2014
There is a small temple on the hillock having several steps. The scenery from the top of the hillock is nice, and one also get to see several kind of interesting birds and lizards. But do travel early in the morning to see the temple or else you may end up getting a sun stroke. Overall a nice place for a weekend trip.
