Bhubaneshwar Tour

The lord’s territory, Bhubaneshwar is a city filled with overwhelming contrasts. On one hand, the city’s ancient repertoire of temples and heritage takes a traveller to a surprising surge. And on the other hand, the city’s high rise, gardens and well planned approach touches heights of modernity. Famed for its ancient temples, the capital city of Orissa is a great Hindu and Buddhist Pilgrimage Destination.

This Bhubaneshwar Tour is of prime historical reverence as it revolves around the then Kalinga in Dhaulagiri, where the gory thousand killings transformed King Ashoka and saw him turning into a Buddhist.
