Popularly known as 'Mahima Mela', it is celebrated at
Joranda in Dhenkanal
district on 'Magha Purnima' day. People from far and near congregate here
and a big fair takes place for three days.
The surging multitude of 'Mahima Sanyasis' worship "Mahima Gosain's Samadhi Pitha" on this occasion. It is during this period that the initiation for promoting "Bairagi" to "Apara Sanyasi" (superior caste of disciples in Mahima Sect) takes place.
