Wandering Destination: Bireswar Temple

Bireswar Temple is dedicated to lord shiva. It is situated at a scenic place, called Birtola near Darjing, on the banks of the river Brahmani.

Rourkelaites are fond of the destination for a weekend picnic. The reflections of sun setting is spectacular to watch.

Colorful rocks here is another attraction. Rocks facets patterns, metallic finish and variety of colors indeed is an attraction for nature lovers.

On the opposite bank of river situates the Bamra range forest which hosts a variety of trees including Mahua, Tendu, and Saal. The river can be crossed with the help of seasonal fishermen here.

Some family of fisherman lives in the dried up river bed and earns by selling the river fish.

How to reach:

Bireswar temple is located at Birtola on the SH23 highway, about 48 Km from Rourkela. It can be approached by road.
