Ajodhya Hills

The 600-meter high Ajodhya Hills form part of the Dolma Hill Range on the Bihar-Puruliya border. It is situated close to Baghmundi-Balarampur road. Landscape here is varied and the climate bracing. The area is full of small and big peaks, the highest being Gorga-buru, 855 m in height. Elephants, deer, wild boars, wolves and cheetahs inhabit the 34,517-acre mountain forests. The Mayuri Hill peak offers a lovely view of the surrounding hills and forests. According to legend, Ram Chandra visited the Ajodhya Hills with his wife Sita, during their banishment. When Sita grew thirsty, Ram created a fountain by piercing the ground with his arrow. The fountain later came to be known as Sita Kund. On Disum Sendra (hunting festival), tribals from far and near come and drink water from the Sita Kund.
