On the day of Kartik Purnima people come to the lord Lingraj temple to offer prayers to Hindu Lord Shiva and then they float boats
in the pond attached to the temple.
Perhaps a heedless swimmer may be unpleasantly surprised, but flowing waters refresh tide pools, float boats
, and enchant the child who watches surf pound against the headland.
5 miles of which is a national wild and scenic river, while float boats
must acquire a permit.
