This place is most beautiful place in Bhubaneswar as the Dhauli giri is located on the top of the hill from there you could see the whole city of Bhubaneswar. Must visit this place if some one comes to Bhubaneswar.

Located far from the main city, it is a must watch fro history lover & buddhist people. It is on the bank of river. The white monument is picturesque beauty.
