#DhanuJatra One of the most unique festival begins today in Bargarh Odisha, when the entire town becomes an open air theater to celebrate the story of Krishna killing Kamsa. A very unique celebration that lasts for 10 days, where whole story is enacted.
Bargarh is one of those small towns that dot the Indian landscape, located in Western Odisha, close to the border with Chattisgarh. The Eastern Ghats flank the town, and they are quite rich in their flora and fauna.
Historically speaking, the place was originally called Baghar Kota, and for some time, it was the capital of the Chauhan rulers of Sambalpur. Till 1992 the place was part of Sambalpur district, before Biju Patnaik created a new district for it.
