It is only to be seen jumping after a short distance over a stone protecting which looks like a nostril of a cow. At the foot of the mountain, Gonasika is a small tank, which is called Brahmakunda and the lord Siva worshipped here said to be established by Brahma. The place is very scenic and attractive to picnic spots. Brahmeswar Mahesh temple is one of the most popular famous Mandir Keonjhar, Odisha
