500 years old temple

1. In Odisha, an ancient temple believed to be around 500 years old has been resurfaced in the Mahanadi River. The temple got submerged in the river due to floods around 150 years ago.
2. It was found mid-river near Baideswar in the Padmavati area in Cuttack. The region used to be known as ‘Satapatana’ in the past.
3. It was located as part of a project by the Indian National Trust for Art & Cultural Heritage (INTACH).
4. As many as 65 ancient temples submerged in the Mahanadi river have been located as part of this project.
5. INTACH will now seek support from the Archaeological Survey of India to relocate and restore this temple.
