The beautiful Hirakud Dam! We entered thinking if we really need to check out a dam and came out feeling so happy we did! Exceeded our expectations in every way possible!

It is built across the Mahanadi river and besides being known as the longest man-made dams , it makes for a really pretty sight! 
Info: It is closest to Sambalpur! You can drive up to the Minar, which is a lighthouse like structure, to get the best view of the place! 
Interesting fact: once you are on top of the  Minar, it starts revolving (My expectations were so low that I thought it was an earthquake 🤣) and you get a 360 degree view of the place!

Quite a few stairs to climb but we weren't disappointed!

You will not be as well, for sure! .
