Raurkela 1/undefined by Tripoto

The sleepy town of Rourkela in Odisha always makes you lazy. Especially since it's my hometown I'm reluctant to do anything other than be at home. But when it rains and weather is so perfect for a long drive you can't help but go on one. I did my research and zeroed down to this waterfall about 30km from my place. As we meandered through the villages we realized there was a stark contrast between the condition of the roads of Odisha and Jharkhand. The latter was terrible to be very honest.
My uncle is an engineer and, throughout his service life, has worked with reputed steel industries of the country. Once, when he was posted in Rourkela, we visited the Ispat Nagari or the Steel City of Odisha. It is a beautiful city surrounded by a range of hills and a number of rivers. The word ‘Rourkela’ literally means, ‘Our Village’. the city is divided into two sections: The Steel Township and the Civil Township. As the name suggests, The Steel Township is the residential colony of the employees of the steel plant.Places to Visit in Rourkela
