Odisha - Land of the Kalinga

Once ruled by Emperor Ashoka the Great, champion of Buddhism, this land has seen a rich history of progressive rulers. Famous for ancient archeological and heritage sites like the Konark sun temple, world renowned for the annual Rath Yatra at Jagannath Puri, a state having a rich culture in dance, music, literature, handicrafts, Odisha despite so many hurdles caused by nature is vibrantly alive. Odisha boasts vast expanses of unspoilt natural landscape to provide a protected yet natural habitat for the incredible wildlife. The Nandankanan zoo and the Similipal National Park are known for the wide variety of flora and fauna, reptiles and other species. Nandankannan zoo partly a sanctuary is also home to many endangered species - especially the white tiger which thrived and swelled in numbers only because of the protected environment that was provided. The Chandaka Elephant Reserve is regularly visited by tourists for its ecotourism activities where apart from elephants other tame animals of the wild roam about unhampered. The state Odisha owes it to a dynamic chief minister and his team who have reversed the fortunes from its once bad condition to becoming a rapidly growing economy. Odisha is also home to fine handlooms which have unique features and exceptional craftsmanship to display like the Patachitra, Bomkai, Sambalpuri.
