Sambalpur, Jan 25 : Mahanadi Coalfields Limited (MCL), a subsidiary of Coal India Limited, will install India’s biggest bell at Mata Ghanteshwari temple, a local deity in the outskirts of Sambalpur. MCL has decided to develop the site and put up a brass metal bell of three-tonne at Mata Ghanteshwari temple to make the holy site attractive for visitors, the company said in a statement today.
Revered by local people, Mata Ghanteshwari near Chiplima in Dhankuda block here has a uniqueness of having thousands of bells offered by the devotees hanging around the sanctum sanctorum. While the giant bell would add the attraction of the site, the bell chime in the morning and evening will add the splendour and holiness in the region. (UNI)
