Ugratara devi worshipped by Angiras and Vashista Rishi

The Goddess Ugratara (Odia: ମା ଉଗ୍ରତାରା)is the tutelary deity of Eastern Ganga dynasty Gajapati kings. Her ancient temple lies 65 kilometers from Bhubaneswar. The icon of Mother Tara is Chaturbhuja, holding potent weapons in her hands. She is very popular as Ugratara due to her fierce aspect, but benevolent to the adorers. There is a railway station named Bhushandapur in Khordha district.
