It is located on the out skirts of Bhubaneswar on the Bhubaneswar-Puri road.You need around 1 to 2 hour to explore it.There is nothing much as such but if u r coming to bhubaneswar u should go once.

This place is up a hill amidst some greenery... there is a Stupa and a Temple... apart from this nothing much to see here... But the view from the top is quite beautiful... the statues on the memorial are nice... this visit does not take much of your time...

Amazing place. Very peaceful. The temple is on the top of the hill and from the temple you can see a very nice landscape surrounding. Must visit if you are in Bhubaneswar or Puri

Visit this place if you just want to tick a place visited. Nothing much to offer... however does offer a good view of the city and has some nice sculptures of budha.

The landmark of the Dhaulagiri Hill is a white modern stupa in Amaravati Buddhist style atop the hill. The round stupa walls have engravings of Hitopadesha (stories from the life of Buddha). A panoramic view of the historic Kalinga battlefield can be seen below.

It is saddening that most people don't have a feel for history. Instead of seeing the Edicts of Ashoka carved in the rock at the foot of the hill, people go up the hill top to take an aerial view of Bhubaneswasr!

Unlike other main temples in Bhuvaneshwar, this is relatively new structure. The stupa was constructed about 4 decades ago. The visit to the hill to enjoy peace, tranquillity and the landscape is worth its trouble. Do visit when in Bhuvaneswar.

This historical place where Ashoka fought a war that turned the river red with blood, & where he decided to give up violence & turn to Buddhism. Presently crooks have set up shops on the steps & sell fake spices (which will look like original but will completely dissolve in water). Every local knows about these crooks but nobody will... More
