Devi point (Orissa-NE India)

Characteristics

Description

Devi point is nearer  to the shakkar lake and it is at 1.5km. from Chikhaldara Busstation.

There are few steps leading to this point on the hill top, from where tourists can view the originating point of the Chandrabhaga River. Travellers can also see the ruins of the Amravati Fort from the top of the Devi Point.

Central Sand, a shoal with depths ranging from 0.4 to 9.1m, extends about 1.5 miles E through NE from Devi Point.
A detached 5.5m patch lies about 1.5 miles S of the same point. Central Sand is reported to have extended about 1 mile farther SE.
In fine weather, the sea does not always break over this shoal.

The Devi River, one of the largest branches of the Mahanadi River, flows into the sea N of Devi Point. This point can best be identified by Balijori Obelisk, which lies about 2.5 miles NNE of the point. Nulyasai Village is also conspicuous to approaching vessels in the vicinity of Devi Point. The river is frequented only by native craft.

Caution: A dangerous wreck is reported (2006) to lie about 11 miles offshore, about 18.5 miles ENE of Devi Point.
