Bhimkund

About 40 Kms.from Karanjia, near Booring village in Thakurmunda P.S. is the sacred pool Bhimkund in the river Vaitarani. The legend reveals that Bhima, the second Pandava used to take his bath in this pool when the Pandavas were passing their incognito life in Birat Nagar, said to be the present Kaptipada. Here river Vaitarani flows through a gorge in steps forming a series of picturesque rapids until it settles down in the pool called Bhimkund. It is encircled by precipitous stone wall. During Makar Festival in the month of January thousands of people gather here to take their holy dip.
