Erstwhile Kalinga of the famous Mauryan emporer Ashoka, the maritime state of Orissa has a varied and fascinating history represented by the famous Sun temple at Konark and the revered Jagannath temple at Puri. Home to sixty-two tribes, the state also boasts of many wild life sanctuaries with denizens including the graceful white tiger. The state’s odissi dance, handlooms and exquisite handicrafts give it a unique and favorable identity.


 

Orissa boasts of a rich and vibrant cultural heritage naturally caused by a long history of different rulers of varied cultural and artistic inclinations. Further confluence of racial streams has also enriched the art, craft and culture of Orissa in no uncertain terms. Orissa is particularly famous for its brass work, silver work, terracotta art objects and appliqué work, besides its unique handloom.


Besides celebrating the important festivals like Dusshera, Durga Puja, Diwali and Holi, Orissa also has its own share of numerous festivals celebrated with frolic and vivacity. The most prominent Puri festival comprises of Rath Yatra, Chandan Yatra and Devasnana purnima. While the Puri Beach festival is a fun lovers fest, the Konark Dance festival marks a befitting tribute to the magnificent Sun temple at Konark.
