Well the district is called the treasure of coal, oranges and cotton but the natural beauty is worth watching here. Patalkot is famous for the hidden medicine world. It has been derived from the Sanskrit word “Patal”. It is believed that the after worshipping ‘Lord Shiva’, Prince ‘Meghnath’ had gone to Patal-lok through this place only.
