Wandering Destination: Vedvyaas, Rourkela


Wandering Destination: Vedvyaas, Rourkela

Confluence of three rivers Sankha, Koel and underground Saraswati

Mythological significance of place:

The name coined after the great sage Vyashadeva who wrote the great epic Mahabharat. It is believed the sage Vyasa was living here wrote the great epic Mahabharat.

Location:

It is situated 13 km away from Rourkela Railway Station and Rourkela New Bus Stand. It is situated in the side of confluence of three rivers Sankha, Koel and underground Saraswati with the creation of Brahmani River.
Plantation in the surrounding of the entrance

Approach:

Take a share auto from Rourkela Railway Station and reach ''Vedvyas Chowk'' in just 10 rupees. From there, I advice to walk for about a kilometer or so, till you reach Vedvyas temple complex.

If travelling by own vehicle:
Railway Station - (Ringroad and then Panposh road) -  Panposh chowk - (NH23) - Vedvyaas chowk - Temple complex



Things to do near Vedvyas Temple Compex:

Morning time is the best time to visit the complex.

1. Visit the temples and the river confluence. One can by flowers and other offerings form shops in the campus.

2. Surroundings at the entrance are green, and photogenic in the early morning. River bank side can give some epic pictures of the devotees.

3. I have seen plenty of butterflies in the nearby vicinity. Species like Common banded peacock are common.

4. Watch the embossed paintings on the walls of temples. Ramayana incidents is the subject normally practiced.

5. Fair in February is the annual attraction.

6. Recognized as picnic spot, however I am not sure.

    1. Thanks Kshitish. People are so humble and down to earth here. Yes, I have just joined the insti. I think after a month or so when butterflying season starts butterflies would be a priority shooting object for me. You have to wait for some time for the pictures. I have a request to you, if you can suggest some places around Rourkela for butterflying !
