Jajpur, Mar 16: An ancient temple of Lord Shiv was found on Monday in Odisha’s Jajpur district.

The discovery was made while mining sand in Baitarani river near Sidheswar Pitha under Dasharathpur tehsil in the district.

The top of the temple became visible during the process of sand mining by a JCB and now efforts are underway by local administration to retrieve the temple from the depths of the riverbed.

The temple could have submerged and then buried over a long period of time when Baitarani changed its course.
