Places to visit
Panchgagh Waterfall : Five waterfalls are gathered together in Panchgagh. By damming the renowned Banai River, this waterfall was created. At Panchghagh, the water does not plunge to great heights. The five streams all crash against the rocks in an extremely turbulent manner, but even so, when one goes close to the water; one can almost hear it roar. Tourists can safely enjoy the swift current of water because it is falling from a lower height. The waterfall's natural surroundings add to its beauty and tranquility.
Distance: Panchgagh Waterfall is 17 kilometers away from Khunti
Angrabari Shiv Temple : The renowned Hindu seer Shankaracharya Swami Swarupananda Saraswathi changed the name of a Hindu temple complex from Amreshwar Dham to Angrabari. It is a temple that honors Ganesh, Hanuman, Ram, and Sita, as well as Lord Shiva. It is rumored that the temple contains a Swayambhu Shiva Linga that is frequently revered. Because it is believed that a mango tree served as the god's place of worship, the temple is also known as Amareshwar Dham. The temple's primary Shivaling is not protected by a roof. This is so because every time someone tried to construct a temple around the Holy Shivling, Lord Shiva appeared in their dreams and asked them to finish building the roof.
