Map of Orissa

Orissa was once the settlement of Aryan and non-Aryan settlers and was known as Kalinga. This was the land of a formidable maritime empire with trading routes stretching up to Bali, Sumatra, Indonesia and Java. Thus Orissa has a chequered history which has successfully assimilated and synthesized the best of Buddhist, Jain and Hindu cultures.This rural riverine land of great Hindu and Jain Temples, of Hindu culture and colourful festivals for the fervent faithful, is slowly stepping out of its historic past into a more exciting but, perhaps, less colourful present. Orissa is sought after for its tourists destinations - the quiet and calm of the holiday beaches and the thick forests of a timeless land that still remains true to its past.
