Nice historic place

We really liked this place. This is where famous battle of Kalinga happened. Please get a government guided guide to ensure that you understand the history of the place.

Dhauli giri hills is of great historical significance in Odhissa. Located almost 20 kms from bhubaneshwar town, the hills is a silent abode of history. Ashoka Sthuba and Shiva temple are adjacent to dhauli hills. One can have a view of dhaya river flowing line vein of the hills, which has greater historical significance. One can also have a view...

I am sharing this experience with everyone visiting Dhaulagiri. Please DO NOT buy anything from the hawkers selling goods at the foothill of the way leading up to the temple. These hawkers sell goods such as; khus khus, chashew nuts and other dry fruits. Whilst the package looks good from the outside it really is filled with husk! Please I... More

If you live in the area then it is definitely worth visiting this place once as it is interesting to see a Buddhist stupa which has been built by Japanese people, though I am not able to find much information on why Japanese suddenly came here...

It is situated outside of Bhubneshwar on the way to Konark. It's a white coloured Santi Stupa having four Golden lions (2 on each side) on four pillars. Near by to this is green agricultural land.
