The foaming waters sparkle vibrantly, acting as a delightful
contrast to the unmelting hardness of the granite bed from which it
cascades through the sun-dappled jungle.
Echoing its joyful song, birds and bathers thronging the pool created by the swirling waters seem to give thanks to 'Hari' and 'Shankar', the reigning deities of Harishankar Temple perched on the southern slope of Gandhamardan hill. The hillside is famed for medicinal plants. It is about 81 km from Balangir.
