The major temple in Cuttack is of Ma OChandi.It is small but well-maintained and without Pandas running after you.One can perform his puja peacefully and put diya at the place dedicated for the same.Though the main deity is Goddess Chandi,there are a few other temples also in the courtyard. A very peaceful atmosphere where you can worship in your way... More
