Bhubaneswar

Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha, is also popularly known as the "Temple City of India". Being the seat of Tribhubaneswar or 'Lord Lingaraj', Bhubaneswar is an important Hindu pilgrimage centre. Hundreds of temples dot the landscape of the Old Town, which once boasted of more than 2000 temples. Bhubaneswar is the place where temple building activities of Orissan style flowered from its very inception to its fullest culmination extending over a period of over one thousand years.

The new Bhubaneswar with its modern buildings and extensive infrastructure perfectly complements its historic surroundings. With facilities to cater to every type of visitor, Bhubaneswar makes an ideal tourist destination.

 

Konark

The magnificent Sun Temple at Konark is the culmination of Orissan temple architecture, and one of the most stunning monuments of religious architecture in the world. The poet Rabindranath Tagore said of Konark that 'here the language of stone surpasses the language of man', and it is true that the experience of Konark is impossible to translate into words.

The massive structure, now in ruins, sits in solitary splendour surrounded by drifting sand. Today it is located two kilometers from the sea, but originally the ocean came almost up to its base. Until fairly recent times, in fact, the temple was close enough to the shore to be used as a navigational point by European sailors, who referred to it as the 'Black Pagoda'.

 

Puri

One of the four celebrated religious centers of India, Puri, the abode of Lord Jagannath needs no introduction. According to tradition Puri was once a thickly wooded hill inhabited by the Sabaras (Pre-Aryan and Pre-Dravidian tribes of the Austric linguistic family). The sunny beach at Puri is one of the finest in the world. Watching the sunrise in a symphony of colours is a wonderful experience. It is one of the most popular sea-side resorts where visitors from any part of the globe can comfortably relax.

 

Chilka

 Queen of natural beauty, Chilika, the largest brackish water lake in Asia covering an area of over 1,100 sq. km is a great attraction for the tourists for fishing, bird watching and boating. In winter Chilika aflutters with thousands of indigenous and migratory birds of many varieties from far and near - even from the distant Siberia. The fabulous beauty of Chilika which has inspired poets to sing its glory and which can be best enjoyed from Balugaon, Barkul, Rambha and Satpada must be seen to be believed. One can also have a glimpse of the lake from the moving trains and vehicles on the road near these places. The atmosphere is just serene and undisturbed amidst the blue expanse of water on one side and an evergreen range of hills on the other. Dotted with a host of islands with romantic names, a cruise in Chilika will be a life-long memory.

 

Gopalpur-On-Sea

One of the most pristine beaches of Odisha, this quiet beach is a splendid retreat for sea-worshippers, located about 16 km from Berhampur. Once a humming seaport, Gopalpur offers its visitors a slice of serenity in environs that are conducive to introspection and conviviality. You can still see the crumbling walls and pillars of the jetty, witness to its past glory of commercial activity. Now, plans are on to revitalise the port again and make it fit for modern ships. The pleasures of the Blue Beach and the Blue Bay with her backwaters continue to lure the water babies… Gopalpur is a surfers delight and is excellent for saling too.

 

Bataguda

Bataguda is a small Village/hamlet in Mathili Tehsil in Malkangiri District of Odisha State, India. It is located 46 KM towards East from District head quarters Malkangiri. 498 KM from State capital Bhubaneswar

Rayagada

Rayagada is a district of meadows, forests, water falls and terraced valleys, peopled by colourful  tribals and many Primitive Tribal Groups. The scenic  beauty and heritage on the land is an unexplored paradise. The systematic relationship between men and nature is a feast to the eyes of an outsider. It has its own appeal for the lap of nature.

The pattern of peopling of the district show unit in diversity of races, languages and culture. The Schedule Tribes living in the district posses dissimilar economics ranging from food gathering to settled cultivation. Their languages/dialects, societies and culture show inter-societal/ cultural variations because of the persistence of ethnic mosaic formed by communities belonging to scheduled Tribes, Scheduled castes and other castes groups.

 Rayagada, the district of many charms, is a thrill to the searching eyes. It has the facilities to serve as a base for visiting the near by place of interest.

 

Chatikona

It is located about 48 Kms from Rayagada surrounded by a series of valleys and wooden hills of varying colours and the place is a center of pilgrimage for the temple of Mahadev. It offers picnickers gorgeous view of the waterfall. The Siva temple  is the focus of hectic activities on Siva Ratri. The Dongaria Kondha of Chatikona  represent the primitive section of the tribe

 

Jeypore

Nature has showered its bounty on the undivided Koraput district with untrammelled joy. This district abounds in meadows, forests, waterfalls, terraced valleys and darting springs. This land of abundance is home to Orissa's vast tribal population. A real paradise for the nature-lover, Koraput offers an additional benefit to the visitor of first hand meeting with its ancient civilization.

Jeypore is the commercial nerve centre of Koraput district and has all such facilities to serve as the convenient base for visiting the places of interest in and around.

 

Gupteswar

Surrounded by dense green forests, gurgling mountain streams and the serene river Kolab, Gupteswar would have shone on the tourism Map of the country. This place is famous for its religious significance of the place, which houses the famous hidden cave temple of Lord Shiva.

The shrine is located at a distance of 80 kms. From Koraput and 55 kms from Jeypore amidst a thick growth of forest.

The place can be approached by forest tracks, which start, from the east of the Ramagiri hill up to a distance of 19 kms. Due to its traditional association with Ramayana figures the places has become a Centre of Pilgrimage in the neighboring tracts of Orissa and Chatisgarh where it is regarded as ‘Gupta Kedara’. The cave shrine containing the Shiva Lingam is noticed at a height of 151 metres higher than the surrounding countryside.

The Gupteswar temple draws over two lakh devotees from Andhra Pradehs, Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh apart from the state, during Maha Shivaratri. Devotees also visit the area all-round the years.

 

Visakhapatnam

Visakhapatnam, or Vizag as it was often called, is the best tourism destination in Andhra Pradesh. From Lakes to cool Beaches, from beautiful Hill Ranges to Caves and Valleys, Visakhapatnam has them all. The district has many tourism spots that represent the Culture and Heritage of the true India.

The Araku Valley is a must visit for any one visiting Andhra Pradesh. Beauty is packed at the Kailasa Giri where we can find greeny meadows, beautiful and wellspread parks to fill your mind with peace. The Borra Caves shows the magnificience of colors in the natural cave formations.

Visakhapatnam is a city of cultural & religious diversity. One should not miss to see the Cultural constructions built during the age of kings who rules this region

The Simhachalam Temple - the temple of Lord Sri Lakshmi Narasimha Swami, built by King Krishnadevaraya one of its kind in India. Boudharamam, Saligudam, Sankaram and Devipuram are areas where the true heritage is being repented in idols. There are many Buddhist Shrines in Visakhapatnam which resembles the cultural developments during that age.
