The Beauty of Sambalpur

Sambalpur, one of the largest and oldest cities in Odisha. It is the headquarters of Northern Revenue Division and of Mahanadi Coalfield Limited (MCL). It is situated about 300 km west of the state capital Bhubaneswar. It is situated on the bank of the Mahanadi River.

Sambalpur is the Western Odisha region's administrative, commercial and educational hub. The city contains many famous temples, historic buildings, and parks. Hirakud Dam, the longest earthen dam in the world and the largest artificial lake of Asia, is situated in this district.

Sambalpur derives its name from the Goddess Samalei or Samaleswari, who is regarded as the reigning deity of the region. The region in which Sambalpur city is located was also known as Hirakhanda from ancient times.

One of our friend, Ansuman Rath had clicked these beautiful snaps of sambal during his last visit in summer.
