Jogisarada situatated at a distance of 25 km. from Balangir is famous for Jogeswar temple. The temple of Goddes Lankeswari is situated on hillock. And because there are so many temples situated at Patnagarh, it became a new district altogether recently.

A WELL laid out town from the time of the Maharajas, Bolangir still possesses the charm and serenity of the old days.
Bolangir includes elegant temples along with the hill Gandhamardan. On this hill there exists an exquisite picnic spot called Harishankar.

The last ruler of Bolangir, Rajendra Narayan Singh Deo successfully made the transition to democratic politics. He became the Chief Minister of Orissa.
