6 Days Orissa Cultural Tour Package from Travel Holidays

ORISSA CULTURAL TOUR

The highly cultured tropical state of Orissa lies along the northeast coat of India, on the Bay of Bengal. Its main attractions are the exquisite temples of the capital, Bhubaneswar, sacred Puri with it long sandy beach, and the huge Sun Temple at konark. Also increasingly popular these days are the Adivasi (tribal) areas of the southwest (25% of Orissa’s population is indigenous) and the national parks to the north.

Around the 1 st century BC, under the rule of Kharavela, the third Chedi kind, Budhism declined and Jainism was restored as the faith of the people. During this period the monastery caves of udaigiri and khandagiri (near Bhubanesar), were excavated as important jain centers.

By the 7 th century AD Hinduism has supplanted Jainism. Under the kesari and Ganga kings, trade and commerce increased and Orissan culture flourished – countless temples from that classical period still stand today. The orissans defied the muslim rulers in Delhi until finally falling to the Mughals during the 16 th century, when many of Bhubaneswar’s temples were destroyed, since then Orissa has been successively ruled by Afghans, Marathas and the British (from 1803to independence in 1947)
