Description :


The Koilighughar water fall is situated 55 km away from Jharsuguda in the Lakhanpur block near the village Kushmelbahal. It is a picturesque beauty spot with Sylvan backdrop. A rivult named Ahiraj takes origin from the Chhuikhanch forest and while flowing through rocky belt falls from a height of 200ft creating the waterfall of the Koilighughar. After the fall the rivulet flows west words to merge into the river Mahanadi, it is a picturesque beauty spot. There is a Shivalayam known as Maheshwarnath inside the fall. The submerged lingam is not visible. If somebody tries to see it from inside the water in winter and summer the lingam is visible under the reflected sunlight hence from the benefit of the pilgrims another Shiva lingam has been created outside the waterfall. Every year a fair sits in Koilighughar on the occasion of Shivaratri.
