"A memorable vacation"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted May 8, 2016
A free added guided visit to Panchalingeswar by Roopark, a morning hike through rustic tribal villages and mountain trails and steps, a powering yoga in deep forest with nature's concert and finally a spring bath and holy worship to Lord Mahadev under the flowing stream everything AMAZING but local people and Govt department should be more reasonable to protect and preserve and natural beauty and atmosphere with cleanliness of the temple zone.

It is a fantastic place with hills around. Lots of greenery. One will like it for a relaxed holidaying. Gurushakti Hotels is a good hotel over there apart from Panthanivas.

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.

"It is a famous place in Balasore"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Sep 23, 2015
It is the best place over the hill and it is also a picnic spot. It gives good and pleasing appearance over the hill top. Here the 5 linga of Lord Shiva is kept. I advice to all travellers that they should visit this nice place.

"A good picnic spot"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Aug 14, 2015
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.
