Nestled in the lush green surrounds of Atri village, just 15 km from Khordha town, the Lord Hatakeswar Temple and Atri Hot Spring Complex offer a rejuvenating spiritual escape for pilgrims and tourists alike.
Designated as a holy site by the Government of Odisha’s tourism board, the complex’s main highlight is the perennial Atri Hot Spring. With water temperatures reaching up to 57 degrees Celsius, studies published in reputable medical journals have extolled the spring’s therapeutic benefits for treating various skin conditions. Visitors can bathe in the medicinal waters at the complex’s public bathing tanks, which are fed directly from the main hot spring kund.
Adjacent to the springs lies the pious Lord Hatakeswar Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva. Legend tells of the lingam in the temple’s sanctum emerging from the earth after Lord Shiva vanquished the demons that plagued the area. The annual Makar Sankranti Mela held here sees over 50,000 pilgrims gather to seek the Lord’s blessings. Visitors can also take a holy dip in the temple’s serene pond to purge themselves of afflictions.
Being just 40 km away from Bhubaneswar, the Lord Hatakeswar Temple and Atri Hot Spring Complex make for an easily accessible and spiritually rejuvenating day trip or weekend getaway. With Odisha tourism promoting the site through digital campaigns and travel blogs, it has quickly become one of Khordha’s must-visit attractions.
