Joranda Mela

Popularly known as Mahima Mela, it is celebrated at Joranda in Dhenkanal district on Magha Purnima day. People from far and near congregate here and a big fair takes place for three days. The surging multitude of Mahima Sanyasis worship Mahima Gosain's Samadhi Pitha on this occasion. It is during this period that the initiation for promoting Bairagi to Apara Sanyasi (superior caste of disciples in Mahima Sect) takes place.
