Mukutmanipur is a village situated in the Bankura district of West Bengal, India. It is situated at the confluence of the Kangsabati and Kumari rivers close to the Jharkhand border.
Things to do:
It is a small town located in the Rarh region of West Bengal in India. It is located adjacent to the dam on the Kangsabati River, which is considered as the second biggest earth dams of India. Mukutmanipur is also famous for the best picnic spots in West Bengal.
The second biggest earthen Dam is 55 km from Bankura and is situated near the confluence of rivers Kangsabati and Kumari. Green forests surround the bluish tract of the river water. Hillocks are also present here.
The place is very much famous for its natural beauty. The terrain present along the side of the southern edge of the Kangsabati Water Reservoir spreads as a necklace of green and terracotta colour.
The stand-till water of the reservoir acts like a large blue tinted glass mirror reflecting the vast expanse of sky over it. The vastness of the lake stretches as far one’s eye can reach. The view of the sunset with the lake is breath-taking. One must also experience the moonlit night around the place. The surface of the static water turns into a shiny silvery plate when moonlight falls upon it.
Jhilimili is located 15 km away from Mukutmanipur. A trip to Jhilimili offers a wonderful exposure to spectacular forest on both sides on the route, and finally reaching Jhilimili which is mounted on the top of a hillock is a great experience. The micacious soil sparkle like heaven.
