Papaharini is the main perennial flow of Gandhamardan Hill in the Baragarh District of Orissa. With an average width of 12 ft, it gushes out at the convergence of seven fountains, Saptadhar. It flows about 25 km and merges with Mahanadi River. Papaharini also touches the Ang tributary before merging with the Mahanadi.

Papaharini literally means ‘the Destroyer of Sins’. It is believed as the representation of Sanatan - the continuum of past, present and future.
