. . . Baneswar . . .

The word ‘Baneswar’ came from Ban+eeswar. Ban was a ‘king of Asura’. He carried out ‘Shiva linga’, and wished to bring eeswar (Lord Shiva) to ‘Patal’, but he failed. The ‘Shiva linga’ fixed at where the temple could see today. Not only local people but also many outsiders come to pray. Debotro trust organises Shiva mela every year (during shiv chaturdashi, i.e. the 14th lunar day of the dark fortnight of the month of Magha) near the temple.
