Description

Bhubaneswar, the capital of Odisha, is rich in historical significance. The old city of Bhubaneswar is often referred to as the 'City of Temples', or Ekamra Kshetra. If history fascinates you, Bhubaneswar is the city for you. A heritage walk through Bhubaneswar will take you to the ancient temples, known for their magnificent architecture and beautiful sculptures. While most heritage walks focus only on the architectural descriptions, our tour is curated in a unique manner. Following anthropologists and historians, our guide will narrate the untold stories behind these age-old monuments and temples. 

The city of Bhubaneswar is much older than you can imagine. It dates back to the 3rd century BCE. The place strikes a balance between Hinduism Buddhism and Jainism. The Kalingan temples still remind one of the glorious past of the city. It is said that Bhubaneswar used to be home to as many as seven thousand temples.

Some of the notable destinations that are included in the heritage walk are Mukteshwar Temple, Parashurameswar Temple, Bindusagar Lake, Ananta Basudev Temple, Dharmashala, Lingaraj Temple, Chitrakarini Temple, Sari Temple, Baitala Temple, Ekamravan, and so on. This walk combines the notable shrines and temples that are historically significant for their antiquity and art. A few of these temples are still abode to deities and continue to be places of worship, while some temples are preserved for their heritage. Through this walk, you will not only get a glimpse of the brilliant ancient architecture but also you will be acquainted with the rituals, culture and mythology of the place.

The walking tour is usually conducted in the morning, as the temples look ethereal and majestic under the first rays of the sun. You will also have an opportunity to witness the puja and other daily rituals of the temples.
