दुरावा त्या रात्री जी हरवलीस तू ,तिलाच शोधतो आहे.मिठीत विसावली होतीस तू,ती मिठी भोगतो आहे !मंद धुंद क्षण, जे दुरावले,पुन्हा ते शोधतो आहे.विश्वास पूर्ण आहे तुजवरी,परीस्थिती भोगतो आहे !आहे नक्की, परतशील तू ,तो क्षण मी शोधतो आहे.असेल वाईट तरीही, उद्यासाठीहा विरह भोगतो आहे !...

Matiabandh Pokhari near King's Old PalaceKeonjhar, a beautiful Odia district, once was a small princely state. Keonjhar served as a capital where the king Dhanurjay Narayan Bhanjadeo built a small palace sometime between 1861 and 1905. After India become the republic, the Royals slowly left the palace due to some or other reason. Lack of attention deteriorated the beauty of the small castle. Nowadays, the palace is not open for public; however, two temples nearby are. One is Maa Tarini temple located inside the palace. After sunset, this part of Keonjhar is frightening. No lights, no directions and feels like it's a typical ghost-Bangalow. The other temple Matiabandh Pokhari (now called...

Wandering Destination: Ghanteshwari TempleAs the name suggests, Ghanta means bells. The title "Ghanteshwari" is originated from the fact that, devotees tie a bell when they visit with some wish. Hundreds and thousands of bells are tied to the holy tree under which the idol of the goddess is situated. Even the breeze rings the bells to create a sweet tinkling sound from the thousands and tiny and big bells. In front of the temple is the Mahanadi river bed.

Visiting Pitamahal Village -PhotoEssayTo visit Pitamahal village, which is nearby the Pitamahal dam, follow the road from the other side of the newly developed Garden. The road passes by the water-spillover arrangement. One cannot cross the canal in between so to reach to Pitamahal village. Instead one has to take a big round to cross the canal at GadheiBalanda and come. An evening is a natural choice to visit this place. Herdsman takes back his cows and bulls back to the village after a day long grazing in the Bamra forest. The road is not yet listed on the google map. The condition is good for a bike to travel and only a strong car can cope with the terrain.Fishing in the Pitamah...
