Odisha Tourism

The place of Lord Jagannath

Odisha borders on the Bay of Bengal. The eastern part, close to the sea is more prosperous, with a lot of tourist locations and religious places. The western part is a hilly and forested area with some of the prominent waterfall, sanctuaries etc and is also a predominantly tribal belt. It is a culturally rich state. The Bhubaneswar-Puri-Konark golden triangle is the pride of the state and are the most popular tourist attractions of Odisha.

Traditionally, Odisha descended from the historical kingdom of Kalinga. The script for the Odia (Oriya) language derives from the Kalinga script which is one of the descendants of the Brahmi script. Odia (also spelled Oriya) is the local language and Hindi is also spoken here.

There are regular trains from Delhi, Kolkata, Visakhapatnam, Bangalore, Hyderabad, and Chennai. There is a airport in the heart of the city of Bhubaneswar with flights are well connected to other major destinations like Kolkata, Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru (Bangalore),Hydrabad, Visakhapatanam, Portblair and some international sectors. Taxis or hired cars are available in important cities and towns. Private rickshaws cost less than regular taxis but you will have to squash up with whoever else gets inside.

Bhubaneswar is known as the Temple City, sea beaches of Puri, Gopalpur, temples like Jagannath temple, Konark temple, Lingaraj temple, monuments like Dhauli, Lalitgiri, Khandagiri, geographical specialties like Chilka Lake, and wildlife. Similipal Forest and Bhitarkaniak National Park are the paradise for nature lovers. Daringbadi hill station is worth a visit for the tourists coming to Odisha. Odisha is well-known for handicrafts.

A typical meal in Orissa consists of a main course and dessert. Typically breads (roti, paratta) are served as the main course for breakfast, whereas rice is eaten with lentils (dal) during lunch and dinner."Dalma" is a special cuisine of Odisha, made of dal & vegetables in very hygienic conditions.The breakfast consists of chuda (poha, flattened rice) and mudhi (muri, puffed rice). Chuda can be eaten either fried or with curd, banana and sugar(called as Chudaa Dahi). Mudhi is a famous snack in north Orissa. Different pitha also form a part of the breakfast menu. The main course in lunch includes one or more curries, vegetables and pickles. Given the fondness for sweet foods, the dessert course may include generous portions of more than a single item. Oriya desserts are made from a variety of ingredients, with milk, chhenna (a form of cottage cheese), coconut, rice, and wheat flour being the most common.

Eat the rasagullas from the dhabas or the little snack stores set in freeways, it comes in yellow, white and brown color and are very delicious.
