The temple is an ancient one and worth to visit which is surrounded by two rivers and a garden. Can spend atleast 2/3 hours by paying obeisance at the temple and idling at the garden and rivers.

However it is better to start early from Jagdalpur and come back in the afternoon after the Mandir Darshan. Danteshwari temple is situated at the entrance of the town. As such the town... More
