Bhubaneswar – Admire Ancient Landmarks & Visit Interesting Cultural Institutions
Bhubaneswar is the capital and largest city of Odisha, renowned for its religious temples, contemporary hotels and incredible dining spots, from street food vendors to cosy cafes and fine dining restaurants. This city is a rapidly developing travel destination, though it still retains its old-world charm with many interesting ancient sites. The city’s temple complexes are a significant part of its rich history. Lingaraja Temple is the most revered temple in Bhubaneswar which was built in the 11th century. This Kalinga-style stone temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and encircled by a number of smaller shrines. Mukteswar Temple is another sacred site to note, dating back to the 10th century with admirable sculptures, a decorative carved arch, diamond-shaped lattice windows and a combination of ancient and modern architecture. Another must-see sightseeing attraction in Bhubaneswar is the Udayagiri & Khandagiri Caves – an ancient cave complex considered to date back to the 2nd century BC, when the caves served as residences for Jain monks. These caves have been beautifully carved with historic and mythical references. Traveasy offers cheap airfares to Bhubaneswar, allowing you to plan a great value sightseeing getaway.
