  • Rarest of rare place.Must see place . About 280 BC rock edicts written of the Great King Ashok. You feel the time when you see this. The place is properly mantained , well occupied with a small garden , drinking water facility . You can take beautiful pics with old banyan tree .
  • Rich tales on history, natural scenery and most importantly the good conditions of the rock edicts that you can see till now very clearly.. Enjoyed being there
  • Awesome place. Explore to know more. Fine place for photography
  • Last year my college friends and professors came to orissa tour, it was a awesome experience.
  • Ashokan Rock Edicts are a piece of history. But it does not feel anything special to look at those. Normally, to protect the edicts they have made glass walls across it. But you can ask the guard to open the gates to see those closes without any obstructions. It's good to take photos near the elephant statue on the top of the edicts. Also, it's cool to rest on the bench under the banyan tree. If not visiting under hot sun, can walk in the park.
