Maa Patana Mangala Temple, Bhadrak
It is believed that the King of Lanka, mighty Ravana brought the goddess Lankeswari from Lanka to Bhadrak as he had an army base in Bhadrak. Bhadrak is often described as Paschima Lanka or Swarnapuri Lanka or dwitiya Lanka or Bhadrak. This is further evidence that Bhadrak is a strong hold of Tantric and Shakti culture.As this area belonged to Dakshina Kosala Kingdom,evidences are there in Ramayana that Ravana used to attack this part frequently.
