Bhattarika, at the foot of the Ratnagiri Mountains, is a temple dedicated to the Mother Goddess. In a war between Sahsarasjuna and Parasuram, it was Saharasjuna who emerged victories in the first round. Parasuram not to be out done appealed to the Mother Goddess by mediating on a stone where he imaged the Goddess. Bhattarika lies in the Athgarh sub-division Cuttak district between Cuttack and Narsingpur. On the main road from the Gopalpurchowks. After 6 kms from here southwards, you will reach Sasanga Gram near the Ratnagiri Mountains.
