The last time I visited the temple was sort of an off-season and so I managed to enjoy some peace and quiet here. Just avoid the peak time and you will probably like it.

It is 22 Kms away from Railway Station. It is in the from of Shaligramam decorated with sandal paste fully. Only once in a year that is on Akshaya Thrithiyai day, you can have the viswaroopa dharishanam. Very calm and quite. A must to see for all.

A historic temple with unique architectural fusion of Vijayanagara style and Kalingas. The temple structure is similar to those built by the Vijayanagara kings in south, whereas the detailed sculptures and adorned columns resemble to the Kalinga temples of east. Unfortunately, photography is not permitted inside.
Located atop the hills, the sunset view of the Eastern Ghats from the temple is splendid.

Must visit. It is dedicated to Lord Narasimha , an incarnation of Vishnu. Avoid lunch hours as the Darshan are closed, for exact timing, check with your hotel.
