Historically described as Ekamra Kshetra, Utkala and Kalinga, Odisha was the cradle of Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism. Bhubaneswar became the capital of Odisha (then Orissa) in 1949 after the capital moved from Cuttack. Designed by German architect Otto Königsberger, the new city was named after Tribhubaneswar or ‘Lord of the three worlds’, an aspect of Shiva worshipped as the main deity of Lingaraj temple. With nearly a thousand shrines, Ashokan edicts and inscriptions, the history of India’s Temple City, is etched in stone. With direct connectivity to the Bhubaneswar airport, travelling is very convenient.

Best time to visit: The ideal time to explore the city is from October to March.

Nakli_Dhaba
Nakli Dhaba, Mayfair Lagoon

Easily the pick of the nine eateries in the complex, the speciality restaurant has all the taste but none of the trappings of a Punjabi Dhaba—killer black dal, methi corn, chicken dishes, complimentary chaas (a yoghurt based drink) and amazing baked gud rasgulla!

6E & Cheeky

Drive 8km south of Bhubaneswar to Dhauligiri or Dhauli for short to see the Japanese Peace Pagoda built in the 1970s and the complete Ashokan Edicts engraved on the rock. The site of the bloody Kalinga War (262-261 BC), where the Daya river turned red from this vantage point made Mauryan Emperor Ashoka shun violence and convert to Buddhism. This is one of the most important tourist places in Bhubaneswar. The rock-cut elephant above the edicts is the earliest Buddhist sculpture in Odisha. Continue via the village of Pipli (famous for its appliqué work) to Puri and visit the beach and the holy Jagannath Puri temple. Along with the Sun Temple of Konark, it forms the Golden Triangle of Odisha. Just a little southwest of Puri is the salt water lake of Chilika, the largest coastal lagoon in India and the most substantial wintering ground for migratory birds on the Indian subcontinent. During the annual Puri Rath Yatra in June–July, witness grand processions of the deities Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra pulled in massive chariots by thousands of devotees.
