About Devakunda Waterfall Information-Udala

Devakunda is a virgin fall in northern Odisha in the district of Mayurbhanj. Being a part of the Udala division it is situated close to the forests of Similipal via Nilagiri. Devakunda is one of those scenic places, surrounded by hills and forests of Similipal. The outer periphery of the famed Sal forest, the perennial waterfall is situated under the Udala block. Devkund is 90 km from Lulung, 69 km from Kuldiha and 87 km from Baleshwar.

The main attraction of this waterfall is the scenic and beautiful natural lake that formed due to the waterfall. The water fall is 50 ft high from the ground level. The water falls from the hill in five stages due to reservoirs that were built intermittently to check its flow. Thus this place is also called Pancha Kunda or the five reservoirs (Pancha means five in Oriya language). The five kundas or reservoirs are called Amrita Kunda, Ghrita Kunda, Haladi Kunda, Devi Kunda and Deva Kunda.

On the top of the hill is the beautiful Devi Ambika Temple built by the royal dynasty of Mayurbhanj in 1940. The Devi is said to be an incarnation of Goddess Durga. Adding allure to the scenic place is the multi colored butterflies and variety of species of chirping birds all around.

Devkund is situated at a distance of 65 km from Baripada and 140 km from Chandipur.

Devakunda Waterfall Reviews and Comments
Our visit to Devkund on 14th January 2014 is a very much memorable. Out of imagination feelings we got from this natural beauty. The view from top of the waterfall is much more enjoyable than front side. Creation of rainbow from waters at afternoon is remarkable. Every one should have a visit to this place atleast once. Suggestion- Road to the waterfall point from parking area should be concrete. ... added by   Amulya Kumar Mohapatra on May 2 2014
