Ramachandi Temple and Beach

This place is just 10 Kilometers from Konark in the Puri-Konark National highway at the Kushabhadra river mouth having marvelous scenic beauty. It has well organized boating facilities and is a great place for picnics. The legend behind construction the temple dates back to 17th century when an invader named Kalapahad witnessed a miracle where the Goddess appeared as a damsel and asked him to wait until she returns with water. She never returned and an angry Kalapahad went in her pursuit but saw the goddess floating in the water. That way he could not destroy the statue of Goddess Ramchnadi.
