Raja Dalpat Dev, during his reign in Jagdalpur, excavated three ponds near RajMahal and turned them into a large lake. Spread over 385 acres, Dalpat Sagar is an important tourist attraction today. One part of Dalpat Sagar is developed into a park. The statue of Madia couple with their children, a symbol of Bastar culture, is an attraction. Established with the help of the Tourism Board, ‘Musical Fountain’ is alluring, with its three shows during the evening. Motor boat facility is available in Dalpat Sagar. In the midst of Dalpat Sagar, Shiv temple is constructed on a mound. On the occasion of Mahashivratri, visitors come by watercraft and motor boat to visit Shiva temple.
On the way to Dharampura, there is a Maa Gayatri temple rightwards. On its backside, at the banks of Dalpat Sagar, a grand picturesque Balaji temple is situated. By the initiative of the South Indian community of Jagdalpur, Balaji temple is a replica of Tirupati Balaji temple. The entrance of the temple is marvelous. Idols constructed in South Indian style are extremely fascinating. The temple’s garbagriha houses an idol of Venkatpati Balaji.
