It is named after the five Shivalinga that are enshrined inside. The temple is on the top of the hillock near Nilgiri hill. The shivalingas are said to have been enshrined by Sita, the wife of Lord Rama, during their exile. A perennial stream which is the main attraction of the area, regularly washes the Shivalingas as it flows over them. To reach the temple one has to lie flat on the rock parallel to the stream to touch and worship the Lingas inside the water stream. It is 27.7 km south-west from Balasore.
