Odisha is the modern city of the famous ancient Kalinga. Odisha is known for its rich culture and enormous number of ancient cities. In fact Bhubaneshwar, the capital of Odisha, is known as the city of temples.
It is surrounded by the states of West Bengal to the north-east, Jharkhand to the north, Chhattisgarh to the west and north-west, and Andhra Pradesh to the south.
Odisha attracts its visitors with its scenic, serene, and sublime natural beauty. Here you can find a unique combination of beautiful locations, exotic cultures, and warm and friendly people. The main attractions here are the long coastline, towering mountains, serene lakes, Temples and beautiful dancing rivers.
Rightly called the Goa of the East, Odisha is a land like no other. The nature hasn’t been kind to this eastern state but Odisha never ceased to fight back, it never lost its faith and spirit. Perhaps Lord Jagganath’s bounty blessings have given the Oriya people hope to persevere and courage to carry out their desired lifestyle. Not untouched by modernity, the state has bridged the gaps between its past and present by keeping its traditions and culture alive. From its beautiful Odissi dance to the exquisite Talapattachitra, from the magnificent rock-cut caves to the pristine Chandipur beach and from the holy abode of Lord Jagganath to the Nandankanan Zoo, it is unlikely to see a land that flourish so well with paradoxes.
