Situated to the north of the Lingaraja temple is a lake called the Bindusagar Lake adding grace to Bhubaneshwar and attracting many tourists. Once a year the Lingaraj temple deity is brought out for the ritual bath in the centre of the tank and it is believed a dip in the holy tank at Bindusagar washes away all the sins. To the north of the Lingaraja temple is this 1,300 ft long and 700 ft wide Bindusagar Lake. It is popular as a picnic spot among the locals too. The scenic beauty of this lake is enhanced by the stones, which have been laid along the embankments. The waters of the lake are said to be an amalgamation of every holy river, stream, lake or pool in India.
