Orissa is a modern state with an ethnic past that is still vibrant. Bhubaneswar, the temple city of the east, Brings together the ethnic world and their art, craft and culture is on display.

Each city of this magnificent state has still kept alive its rich and vibrant culture which are echoed by the colourful and lively people, festivals and dance and music and the bazaars that are held in the city, also its past glory is experienced through the impressive forts and palaces.

Orissa has an ideal amalgamation of Buddhist, Jain and Hindu cultures. The non-Aryan and Aryan settlers inhabited Orissa or Kalinga. Orissa formerly known as Kalinga is remembered for the famous Kalinga Battle fought in 261 BC, which made the great Mauryan King Ashoka abandon his reign and adopt Buddhism. There are also the epitomes of Jain art and culture in Orissa. The state is also a standing testimony to the Hindu temple architecture.

The lifeblood of the state Orissa is the Odissi, the traditional dance form of Orissa. The oldest classical dance form has made Orissa achieve new heights of popularity. There are a number of interesting tours in Orissa. The nearest excursion, the Sun Temple at Konark, is the most famous tour destination in Orissa. Chhau from Mayurbhanj District, the skillful martial dance form is also famous in Orissa. Other folk and tribal dances include Danda Nata and Ranapa. Stone Carving, Weaving, Ikat, Bomkai and Sambalpuri Saris, applique and embroidery, silver filigree work, patta painting and palm leaf engraving, brass and bell metal work, lacquered boxes and toys and basket weaving are the other art forms of Orissa.

Time of visit

For visitors from colder climates, the best time for visit would be between October to March. The weather during this time is very pleasant and conducive to travel. This is also the time when millions of migratory birds make their way from the north to nest in the lakes and forests of Orissa. However, Orissa is not without attraction during the rest of the year. Barring occasional very high temperatures for a few days in the months of May-June-July, and a couple of weeks of heavy rains during the monsoons, the climate in Orissa is very much to the advantage of visitors. In fact, these so called off seasons are the best times to get fabulous deals on accommodation, local transport etc.

Entry points

The most convenient way to enter Orissa is through the capital city of Bhubaneswar. The city is well connected to the rest of the country by air, rail and road and makes a pretty good base for your explorations. However, if you are planning a trip towards the southern districts of Orissa alone, you could make your entry through Berhampur which is also on the Kolkata-Chennai railway line and on the Kolkata-Chennai National Highway (NH 5). You could also make use of Visakhapatanam (which has an airport in addition to being on the same rail and road network as Berhampur) in Andhra Pradesh to enter the southern districts by road. If you are planning a visit to Simplipal and its neighbouring areas, Balasore or even Kolkata would make an ideal entry point/base. For visiting the western areas of Orissa, Rourkela and Sambalpur make ideal entry points.

Airlines

Bhubaneswar is well connected by air to all major cities in India. For visitors coming from abroad, whether you enter India from Mumbai, Kolkata, New Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore or Hyderabad, you will find convenient flights to Bhubaneswar. To get the information on flights to and from Bhubaneswar, please visit www.indian-airlines.com for Indian Airlines and Alliance Air flights, www.airsahara.net for Air Sahara flights, www.flykingfisher.com for Kingfisher Airlines and www.airdeccan.net for Air Deccan.
