History

Karanjia College is located at the outskirts of the meandering Deo river which tumbles down majestically from the foothills of the Similipal forests. The woodland grace of the Similipal National Park with its rare flora and fauna has attracted the tourists for sight seeing and the researchers for exploring the untapped areas of History, Anthropology, Culture and Literature. On the otherside, the unique Khiching Temple stands vibrant with history. The stones of the temple depict art and poetry of ancient Orissa. In close vicinity to National Highway 6, Karanjia is well connected with Baripada, Keonjhar, Jajpur , Bhadrak , Tata, Calcutta, and Bhubaneswar by road.

The teachers, students, guardians and well-wishers keep on striving to make this old institution an advanced centre of study and research in the state. The immortal lines from the Poem of Robert Frost inspire the young generation to leave the foot prints of success for the posterity -

The woods are lovely, dark and deep,

But I have promises to Keep,

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

The long cherished dream of starting a college in the predominantly tribal dominated Panchpir Sub-division (Karanjia) came in to existence in July 1964. It was possible due to the active up-manship and dedication of the generous public of Panchpir Sub-division in general and the then S.D.O. Sri D.Mohanty and D.F.O. Sri Gour Mohan Das in Particular. Donation for the college poured in from all quarters of which special mention may be made of the Panchayat Samities, Primary Teachers’ Association and students of M.E. and High Schools.
