It is 70 kms from Bhubaneswar, on the bank of river Mahanadi, famous for Lord Nilamadhaba temple on the top of the twin hills surrounded by green forest. The presiding deity of the place is believed to be the earlier form of Lord Jagannath of Puri. The permanent flow of holy water from the feet of Lord Nilamadhaba and the movement of the great Shakti of Lord Siddheswar to North and South according to the sunrise and sunset are the two wonderful sights to be seen here.
