Jharsuguda is a city located in the western part of Odisha. It is an emerging industrial hub, particularly in the metal and cement sectors. It has a thriving industry, mostly centered around thermal power plants and mining. Jharsuguda has often been referred to as “Little India” due to its diverse demography, languages, and cultures. The culture of Jharsuguda is influenced by the various communities residing in the city. The city also boasts a rich tradition of folk music and dance.

Jharsuguda offers several tourist attractions, including waterfalls, temples, wildlife sanctuaries, and natural parks in the surrounding region.
