Nirmala Jhar Temple was built in 1676 by King Aparajit Sri Balukeswar Mardaraj who converted his summer palace with a perennial spring called Nirmala Jhar (clean stream) & built the temple dedicated to Goddess Bimala. Khallikote’s history of the Royal family of this estate can be traced back as 13th century. Its kings like Harihara Mardaraj, Rama Chandra Mardaraj were great patrons of culture. The credit of first college for Art & Crafts goes to Khallikote. There is a Govt. Autonomous College at Berhampur known as “Khallikote College”, named after Khallikote, whose revenue has been utilized for the spread of education. The privately owned Purvasha Folk & Tribal Art Museum is relatively a new yet well maintained museum with 16 amazing galleries.
