About Bata Mangala Temple of Puri

Bata Mangala Temple is a temple dedicated to the Hindu Goddess Mangala. The temple is on the road leading from Puri to Bhubaneswar, on State Highway No.8 located 7 km away from the Hindu Holy town of Puri in the state of Odisha, India.

In Odia language 'Bata' means 'Way', since Goddess Mangala is enshrined on the way to Shreekhetra, she is known as Bata Mangala. The temple is revered by devotees on the way to the nearby Jagannath Temple. It is customary that devotees pray in this temple before they proceed to the Jagannath Temple.

It is said that when Brahma first came into existence it was confused on seeing a great void all around him. The goddess Bata Mangala appeared to it guiding it to Lord Jagannath . Thus did Brahma gain its focus and proceed with the task of cosmic creation.
