The view of Bhubaneswar city and the neighbouring villages from the top of the hillock of Panchalingeswar was amazing. The temple here has a vast campus.

One can reach Panchalingeswar from the nearby city Balasore through bus or by hired taxi. It will take 30 minutes /45 minutes through hired taxi. The only one and nearby airport is the Biju Pattanaik airport in the capital Bhubaneswar. From Bhubaneswar through bus (several Air conditioned buses are available) one can arrive at Sergarh stoppage on the way of national highway No-60. From Sergarh it is 20 KM and can be reached by several regular buses and taxis or else hired taxi is the better option. From Kolkata one has to reach Balasore city through bus or train and from Balasore this place is easily approachable through hired taxi.

Panchalingeswar is a Valley of Mystique
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.

The Panchalingeswar is situated over the hills under the Devgiri range (part of Nilgiri). Monstrous rocks are scattered all over the hills and the silence of the forest prevails the beauty of that area. To reach the top of the auspicious heavenly abode of Lord Shiva,one must climb the 313 stairs up the hill. On both sides of the stairs, rocks of different sizes can be seen. Water from the falls on the hilltop is trickling down under the rocks. People used to enjoy bathing in the flowing water between these rocks. This is a unique place where one can find five Shiva lingas. Nilgiri kings found those lingas long ago. Panchalingeswar is actually part of the Kuldiha forest.
On top of the Panchalingeswar temple, there is an another temple of Banadevi. There is a small lake In front of that temple.According to the local people, this pond is not connected to any external water flows but is self-oozing.Sitting near the pond, you can clearly see the bubbles coming from the bottom of the lake. On the top of the hill, there are many small waterfalls which are mesmerizing for the visitors.
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.

Over two hundred years ago, up to the period when East India Company occupied Odisha in 1803 A.D. and Nilgiri came under the reign of East India Company in 1807, there was no record of visiting Panchalingeswar or Ahuti valley by the then King Mandhata Ramachandra Bhujanga Baliar Singhdeo Mardaraj Harichandan. In 1811 A.D. his son Gobinda Chandra Mardaraj Harichandan was enthroned as the next king.Although he was a religious king and had built some of the temples, such as the Jaga Balia Temple at Mukundapur, there is no evidence of his patronage for Panchaligeswar or Ahuti valley. He reigned from 1811 A.D. to 1848 A.D. After his death, his son Krishna Chandra Mardaraj Harichandan was enthroned in 1849 AD.
The queen, Arnapurnna Devi, had a dream in which Lord Shiva ordered her to worship his five Phallus symbols engraved in a grove in a pit of flowing stream of water in east of Ahuti valley. The queen narrated all the details she had dreamt to the king. The king with his courtiers, counselors, and minister went to Ahuti forest, as per the instructions dreamt by the queen, and searched for the 5 Shiva lingams. At last he got success in relocating those emblems of Lord Shiva.

All shouted and uttered the slogan 'Jay Baba Panchalingeswara'. From that day onward the name of that place is Panchalingeswara. The king worshiped the emblems and made all sorts of arrangements for the adoration of Baba Panchalingeswara. He appointed the late Bihari Kar of Basudevpur as the first priest for worship. From that day onward, people have been worshiping the Panchalingeswara, which once had been hidden for centuries.

Ensconced in the serene and splendid green environs of Nilgiri, the five lingams at Panchalingeswar, the revered venue for numerous devotees, are bathed by the iridescent and sparkling waters of a perennial stream. Legend has it that these lingams were installed in this beautiful abode by King Banasura himself, because of the serenity and beauty of its surrounding environs. A place 32 km from Balasore on a hilltop surrounded with the beauty of the woods. A place of choice of nature lovers and deep thinkers.
God is in hidden form. The true devotee will find the god.
