Pujari Kanker village is on the border of Telangana, 72 kilometres from Bijapur district headquarters in Chhattisgarh.

Pandavas are worshipped in this village.

In this village, separate priests have been appointed for each of the five Pandava brothers.

The villagers believe that the Pandavas had spent some time in a secret abode located in a huge mountain near the village during their entry into Dandakaranya.

Thus, the mountain is named Pandav Mountain.

The Pandavas emerged from the Sakalnarayan cave near Bhopalpatnam through a tunnel passing through this mountain.

where the idol of Shri Krishna is presently placed.

There is also a temple on top of the mountain.

Every year, the Sakalnarayan fair is held where an idol of Krishna is worshiped.

Apart from this temple, the villagers have also built Dharamraj (Yudhishthir) temple on the outskirts of the village.

where a fair is held once every two years.

in which 25-30 village deities come to participate.
