Dhauli Giri Hills, Bhubaneswar
(3.7/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
As an ancient and sacred site of Buddhism, Dhauli Giri Hills allegedly represents the spot where the Kalinga War was fought well over 2,000 years ago. When you visit, you can see one of the earliest Buddhist sculptures in the form of a rock-hewn elephant. Around the hill stand stupas, pillars, and chaityas, and at the very top, a dazzling white pagoda built in the 1970s. Try to visit early in the day to avoid the massive crowds that often gather at this site.

  • Buddhist temple very attractive, At the foot of the hills Emperor Ashoka's eddicts are carved in stone, but we need somebody show it 
  • This is a place to visit if u are around bhubneshwar Hills are pretty high on which ashoka stup is made and having a view of place where ashoka last bettle was taken place. 
  • The drive was a beautiful green forest. Mid serenity , no rush .. calm atmosphere. Couple can sit around alone and have a nice time pass. Can have a good photo session also...
