Huma's Leaning Temple

Huma Temple, the leaning temple of orissa,Orissa temples32 km from Sambalpur,Huma a village situated on the left bank of the Mahanadi, is famous for the Leaning temple dedicated to Lord Siva, which was built in the reign of Baliar Singh, the fifth Raja of Sambalpur. The worship of Siva is said to have been initiated by a milkman(Gauda), who daily crossed the Mahanadi to a place on the bank where the underlying rock croped out. Here he daily offered his dole of milk, which was at once drunk up by the rock, and this miraculous circumstance led to enquiries, which ended in the construction of the present temple. The presiding diety is Bimaleswar Siva.
