Orissa Tourism

Lying along the eastern coast of India, Orissa is a verdant paradise of paddy fields and palm fringed silver beaches, temples, rivers, waterfalls and tribal people. Rich in natural resources, yet amongst the poorest of Indian states, Orissa’s major attractions are the temples of Bhubaneshwar and Puri, miles of the cleanest silver beaches and the magnificent Sun Temple of Konark.

Bhubaneshwar, Puri and Konark together make an opportune and appropriate triangle for tourists to Orissa. Nandan Kannan, a zoological park and habitat of the rare white tiger, Chilka Lake renowned for its visiting population of migratory birds, the Dhauli Buddhist temple, Udaigiri-Khandgiri ancient caves, Ratnagiri-Lalitgiri images and caves, Duduma waterfall, the Gopalpur sea beach and the Hirakud Dam make Orissa a treasure trove of India’s religious, cultural and natural heritage, a veritable delight for the eyes.
