    Rankini Mandir

    Located on the Hata-Jadugoda state highway, the temple is in the Rohinibera village of Bansila Gram Pnchayat in Potka block. It is about 3 kms from Jadugoda and 35 kms away from Tatanagar Railway Station. The icon worshipped in the temple is an incarnate of Goddess Kali. The ancient temple is said to have formerly existed on a rock.

    As the heresay goes, the temple had even witnessed the human sacrifices in the past, till about 1865, which was eventually stopped by the British. The belief amongst the tribes ran that the Goddess herself killed the victims. The priests during those days were from the tribal Bhumij community. From Tatanagar, come to Jadugoda, from where take a local transport to the temple.
