Chakapad has located 55 km from Phulbani and is one of the religious places of Kandhamal. Saivism is the presiding religion of this place. Lord Shiva is worshipped as Lord Birupakshya. The temple built on the banks of an ancient and sacred river Bhutaganga is visited by thousands of devotees all year round.

One striking feature of the temple is that each and every tree, as well as the Shiva Linga inside the temple, leans towards the south. Two other temples of Anandeswara and Jageswara are also revered with huge devotion.
