The Dhamra Port is a major newly developed Port in Bhadrak district, Orissa, India, on the shore of the Bay of Bengal about seven kilometers from the old port of Dhamra.
The temple of the Goddess Maa Dhamrai is located in the town. Some say that the goddess was brought from Sri Lanka by a local merchant who frequently traded with that island. Others say that she came from a place named “Satabhaya”. She was thrown into the sea by her sisters who were angered by her pure vegetarianism, and was found floating by some fishermen who brought her to Dhamra. After an earlier temple had been destroyed, the present temple was built over a ten-year period, opening around 1990.
