Bhubaneswar Travel Guide

The capital city of Orissa, Bhubaneswar literally means The Abode of the Lord of the World. Bhubaneswar is also popularly known as the "Temple City of India", it is the seat of 'TriBhubaneswar’ or 'Lord Lingaraj', the Lord of the Three Worlds – the God Shiva. So come to the temple city of Bhubaneswar, where at every corner you turn you find another temple. Most of the temples are located in the old town and are reminiscent of the architecture during the Kalinga period. With this religious ambience, you fall asleep and wake up to the ringing of temple bells and chanting of shlokas!

Old Bhubaneswar’s skyline has temple spires extending tall fingers into the clouds with saffron pennants announcing the all-encompassing presence of Hinduism. The New Bhubaneswar, with its modern buildings and extensive infrastructure perfectly blends into the religious ambiance.

Don’t forget to visit the Nandankanan zoo located 25kms from Bhubaneswar. Considered as one of the best zoos in India, Nandkanan is home to the rare Bengal White Tiger - if you are lucky, you might spot one!
