Sri Sri Harisankar Devasthana(Odia: ଶ୍ରୀ ହରିଶଙ୍କର ମନ୍ଦିର), is a temple on the slopes of Gandhamardhan hills, Odisha in India. It is popular for its scenes of nature and connection to two Hindu lords, Vishnu and Shiva. As a holy place, along with a stream passing on the granite bed, it has given some visitors a feeling of peace. On the opposite side of the Gandhamardhan hills is the temple of Nrusinghanath.[1] The plateau between the two temples has been found to have ancient Buddhist ruins, which are considered to be remnants of the ancient Parimalgiri University.

Today, I got some snaps of Harisankar Temple by one of our friend, Soumya Ranjan Sahu.

We prepare every dish in such a way that, nobody could give a no to it. Here we have an authentic Odia style prawn curry. Prawns are cooked in the mustard sauce. Goes well with Rice. 😬

Besara is a method of cooking where mustard paste plays the most important role. The tangy flavor serves its purpose well.

Marriage is known as the best experience in someone's life. According to Indian culture, this thing comes once in someone's life. But sometimes, this thing comes more for some people. But, that thrill won't be there after the first time. So, everything is memorable in the 1st time.

Marriage brings happiness not only to the boy or the girl but also for the family and according to someone, happiness increases by sharing. So the family through a part to the nearest and dearest one. Also, people distribute some special kind of sweets during the marriage ceremony in Odisha. Here we have some of them.
