Gonasika

Surrounded by a series of villages of wooded hills of varying colours, the place is famous as a center of pilgrimage for the temple of Brahmeswar Mahadev, established on the river Baitarani. In fact this is the place from where the river starts flowing. A little away from the point of origin, the river goes underground and hence called Guptaganga only to be seen jumping after a short distance over a stone projection looking like the nostril of cow. The scenic beauty of the place is simply charming. It is 33 km from Keonjhar.
