Sri Achyuta, in his spiritual form is all pervasive and omnipresent. While he was in his physical form, his work and Sadhana was related to many different places of which only the most popular ones are known. Most of these places are marked by a sacred Banyan Tree (Bata) and has a specific name. After nearly 600 years, Sri Achyuta still performs his planned work, instructing via the copper oracle, in and around these places. To name a few, they are: Puri (Shunya Bhajana Pitha), Nemala (his original place of Sadhana and Samadhi), Kakatpur (Copper oracle and Prachi river), Konark (Baba Artatrana Das's Abdhut Ashram from where Pothi was obtained), Cuttack Jobra (Tattva bata and Sadhana pitha), Paradip (Udaya bata and Ratna bata), Olasuni Caves (Gumpha) of Sri Arakhita Das, Devi Biraja Khsetra at Jajpur, Chatia Bata of Mahapurusha Hadi Das in Jajpur, and Khanadagiri and Udayagiri caves in Bhubaneswar.

Please note: This list is obvioulsy incomplete (there are other Pithas related to PanchaSakha and Sadhana Khsetras), We will incrementally capture and present facts about the related places, one step at a time.

Some of the places are directly related to Shri Achyuta, whereas some others are related to spiritual companions of Shri Achyuta and are known after the name of the presiding Seer.

Here, we will document some of the facts that we collected verbally from locals or reading scriptures about these places. We attempted to cover these places by road trips, as much as is possible, and took pictures of the places and made videos of the road trips with some explanatory documentations. It is our hope that these 'Explanatory Articles' and 'Documentaries' will be helpful to 'Admirers of heritage stories' and 'Uncommon travellers'. This is a somewhat big project for us, so please bear as we make an effort to make this page. The motivation is to document facts related to PanchSakha culture and lives as much as is possible.

We will also appreciate any feedback or relevant contributions towards these documentaries.
Thank you for your support in this optimistic endeavour.
