Surrounded by a sequence of valleys and wooded hills of varying colour, the place is famous for the origin of river Vaitarani as well as a centre of pilgrimage for the temple of ‘Brahmeswar Mahadev’.

A little away from the point of its origin, the river goes under ground, and seen after jumping a short distance over a stone ridge looking like the nostril of a cow. It lies 45 km from Keonjhar.
