Bhubaneswar's most popular templeBhubaneswar is the capital of Odisha, one of the eastern states of India. A history dating back to the second century B.C., Bhubaneswar has been an important place even in the medieval days. It is said that at one point of time Bhubaneswar boasted of 2000 temples. The present count being over 600, it has retained its name of being the Temple city of India. The principal temple is the Lingaraj temple. The architectural uniqueness of all temples spanning many centuries is its resemblance to each other. Together with Puri and Konark Bhubaneswar forms the “Golden Triangle”.

As against the ancient, traditional and ethnic backdrop we have the modern city of Bhubaneswar designed by the German architect Otto Konigsberger in 1946. Bhubaneswar replaced Cuttack as the capital of Odisha in 1948. Bhubaneswar today is a booming Information Technology hub and is one of the fastest developing cities in India in recent years.

Nandan Kanan National Park, Chandaka Elephant Reserve, Khandagiri and Udaigiri Cves, Dhauligiri the Peace Pagoda, Lingaraj Temple are some of the places worth visiting.
