Kondagaon (Chhattisgarh) [India], Sep 20 (ANI): Located at Chhattisgarh's Kondagaon district, Mata Lingeshwara Temple is unlike any other temple of the country. What makes this temple unique is the fact that it opens for the devotees only for 12 hours in a year.
A large number of devotees from across the state throng to the shrine to take the blessings of the deity. The temple is located at the top of a giant stone and devotees had to crawl to enter the temple.
"We have heard a lot about the temple. So even I came here to make a wish for a child," said one of the devotees, Abhijeet Mehata Indoor.
The district administration also beefs up the security arrangement in the area as the temple is located in the Naxal-affected area. (ANI)
