Keljhar, with 1,871 inhabitants in 1961, is a village in Candrapur tahsil about 28.96 km. (18 miles) from Candrapur having a railway station on the Candrapur-Nagbhid route. Here Sir A. Cunningham found two cromlechs or dolmens, which he at first took for kistvaens which had been broken open. On further enquiry, however, he concluded that they were small shrines raised by the Kurumvar shepherds to Mallana Deva and Mallani Devi, at which, once goats were sacrificed to avert tigers and murrain from the flocks. These cromlechs have now disappeared. The village has a primary school and a post. On Fridays a weekly bazar is held. The inhabitants depend upon well and tank water.
