Sikhar Chandi Temple is located on top of a hill in the Patia area within the city of Bhubaneswar. Maa Shikharchandi is worshipped in a temple on this hill. It is said to be associated with the Yogini culture. Interestingly, the regular Pujak of the Sikharchandi is a non-Brahmin, who comes daily from a nearby village down the hill and leaves the temple by evening. It appears to be contemporaneous with the Chausathi Yogini temple of Hirapur. You can enjoy the beautiful view of the city from the temple premises, especially after the sunset provides a pleasant sight to the viewers. Shikhar Chandi Temple is a tourist attraction in Bhubaneswar, Khordha.
