There is no specific history attached to the temple. However, legends say that king Niladri Samara Singha Mohapatra had built a wooden temple after he had a dream of the arrival of God Akhandalamani at the place. Since then, locals and people from different villages started visiting the place and worshiping the Lord. Later, the wooden structure was replaced by cement and concrete temple structure to make it more hardy and resistant to various environmental conditions.
