The original name of Payra river is Burishwar. The length of this river is 90 km. The width of the river varies from place to place. The width of this river is about one kilometer on the coast of Gulbunia. The river leaves Gulbunia and flows a little further south to the Bay of Bengal. And so, wave and tidal pressure makes Gulbunia vulnerable to erosion. A block-dam has been built on the bank of Gulbunia to save the village from that erosion. That dam has now become one of the most satisfying food for the wanderlust.
