  1. Very well written blog, you did a good representation.

  2. Good. Can mention other parts of odisha as well and their scenic beauties !!!

  3. What ever is narated is good, but does Odisha means Bhubaneswer-Puri-Chilika . Other parts of Odisha doesn't hv any thing. Don't we hv Worlds longest earthen dam The Hirakud Dam(10kms from Sambalpur) Harishankar,Narsinghnath temple. The leaning temple of Huma(25 km from Sambalpur)Ranipur Jharia temple near titlagard.The kishmir of Odisha- daringbadi.

    1. rightly said Tushar, but sadly the tourism network in the Western and South-Western Odisha is undeveloped. It is time the state decides to invest in developing tourism infrastructure in these places and then only can we initiate branding and promotion.

  4. Wow beautiful ancient Orissa!
