Nice blend of nature and devotee

This waterfall is nice place to have fun with friend and it's the best picnic spot of Balangir. There is a DEER park too. The water is damn cool and make you feel the freezing temp in the most Winter days. If time permit, take a visit to "JAL MAHADEV"

Beautiful temple with cascading waterfall

The place is full of greenery of Angamardhana hill. Harishankar as the name suggests is known for both Hindu Gods Hari and Shankar. Also do not miss to visit the Deer Park on the way to Harishankar. Also this place comes under Balangir district.

Main attraction of Balangir

Firstly it is a part of Balangir district not Raurkela. It has many temples which attracts some people but the main attraction is the waterfall. A great place to have fun.

A holy and peaceful place

This temple is known for god Hari and Shankar. There is an old legend that both good are combined near to a water fall of Ganghamardhana hill. I saw this place for the first time, and it was amazing that, in between the river there are idols of both the gods. A holy and peaceful place.
