    Ghanteswari Temple - The Ghanteswari Temple, also referred to as Maa Ghanteswari Temple, is situated 33 km south-west of Sambalpur, on the banks of River Mahanadi. This temple is famous for its wish fulfilling bells that are offered by the devotees, to the goddess of this temple. These bells are seen all around this temple and were also used to warn and guide early sailors. The area around this temple is a conglomeration of three streams. The Mahanadi river used to have many whirlpools in earlier times and many boats used to drown in it. So, to warn any sailor nearing this spot, the bells of this temple were shaken fiercely to produce loud sounds. Due to this, this temple is also called the ‘lighthouse without light’. The place became safer after the construction of the Hirakud Dam, nearby. The Chiplima Hydro Power plant is also situated near this temple.

     

    Samaleswari Temple - The Samaleswari Temple lies in the Sambalpur District, on the banks of River Mahanadi. This temple is dedicated to Sri Sri Samaleswari, who is the presiding deity of Sambalpur, as well as a strong religious force in the western part of Orissa and Chhattisgarh. In ancient times, Goddess Samaleswari was worshiped as Jagatjanani, Adishakti, Mahalaxmi and Mahasaraswati. The most visited days of this temple include Navaratri and the Nuakhai Festival.

     

    Huma Temple - The Huma Temple, also known as the ‘leaning tower of Huma’, is another popular temple of Sambalpur, situated at 23 km from the district, at the banks of River Mahanadi. This temple was built in 1670, by King Baliar Singh, who was the fifth king of the Chauhan Dynasty of Sambalpur. It is known as a leaning temple because it does not stand upright, but is tilted more towards one side. Every item within the temple complex is also skewed. The main deity of this temple is Lord Shiva. According to legend, there was a milkman who used to cross the Mahanadi every day, to worship Lord Shiva. He used to offer milk to the rock idol of Shiva, which consumed the milk every day. This miraculous incident led to the construction of Huma Temple in the place. The most visited day of this temple is the Shivratri, when a large number of devotees come here for offering milk to the idol of Lord Shiva, present in this temple.

     

    Chiplima - Chiplima is a popular picnic spot situated at 37 km from the city of Sambalpur. The main attraction of this place is a 24.38 m tall natural waterfall, which is harnessed for generating electricity. Apart from this waterfall, Chiplima is also home to the Ghanteswari Temple, along with the State Livestock Breeding and Agricultural Farm, which is run by the state government.

     

    Ushakothi Wildlife Sanctuary - Ushakothi Wildlife Sanctuary, also known as Badrama Sanctuary, is a popular wildlife sanctuary situated 43 km north-east of Sambalpur, on the National Highway number 6. This sanctuary was established in 1962, over a total area of 130 sq km; and is one of the smaller sanctuaries of Orissa. This sanctuary also has the popular Hirakud Dam, situated to its west.
