Barsur, located about 100 kms from Jagdalpur, in the neighboring district of Dantewada, is home to temples that are about 1000 years old. These temples have amazing sculptures and are of magnificient architecture.
Beyond Barsur, about 6 kms away, there is a place called Sath Dhar, where the River Indravathi flows through. The place is serene and picturesque. The bridge over the river is noteworthy. The situation however is a little tense in view of the multiple police check posts, given the ongoing insurgency.
