Shri Rama Chandra Pur is situated immediately next to the tempel of Sakigopal on the road connecting Bhubaneswar and Puri. The beautiful hindi tempel of Sakigopal is a highly spiritual place and many hundred devout people come to pay tribute to Krishna and Rada every day.The Bramahn village Shri Ram Chandra Pur became famous when the first mixed cast school was founded here one hundred years ago. To honor this, 2008 a big public park with an amphitheater and a civic center were inaugurated. Dr Dash was one of the driving forces in that project. This park would be put to our availability for outdoor public schooling, sports and cultural events.
In Shri Ram Chandra Pur one feels set back in time. Astrology is consulted for decisions of importance, everything is created manually, the farmers work their fields in traditional, biological manner. In the evenings sounds of Mantras, Pujas and Banjans sang by the priest and devouts fill the streets.
There’s one main road for cars otherwise oxwaggons, bycicles and cows crowd the streets. Uncounted rivers circle the village and a lake with a tiny tempel mark the center.
