Minajhola

Minajhola is situated in Rayagada district at a distance of about 134 kms from Rayagada city. This place is famous for its Shiva Temple which is located at the confluence of three rivers. The temple is surrounded by dense forest rich in wildlife. The major festival of this place is Shivratri. Large number of devotees gather to pay homage to Lord Shiva in this event. Though this place is worth visiting, there is no good all-weather-road to travel. The scenic beauty around the temple and near the confluence of the rivers is really adorable.

Regular bus service is available to Rayagada from Berhampur, Koraput and Bhubaneswar (390 km). From Rayagada one can take a bus up to Gudari and the rest 25 kms from Gudari to Minajhola can be traveled by jeep or hired taxi.
