Trip to Bhugaon
Visiting common places or places well known as tourist spots sometimes seem less interesting as tourism is so much promoted on TV and travel sites nowadays, that a person can simply watch these mediums to be accustomed with the place even before visiting it. This leads to a loss of excitement and thrill while visiting the actual place. But, visiting a place which is not so popular on the tourist sites yet holds a lot of adventurous spots for sightseeing will be indeed a surprise package. Bhugaon, for example is one such place which has still not earned a place under the limelight of tourist spots.

Bhugaon derived its name from Bhubaneswar which is another pseudonym for Lord Shiva and the Shambhu Mahadev Mandir is quite renowned place to visit.

These are all historical spots with religious inclination. Visit to Shambhu Mahadev Mandir is a recommended on the visiting list as the temple dates back 300 years.
