East India Golden Triangle

East India Golden Triangle Tour The eastern temple town triangle of the Bhubaneshwar, Puri and Konark forms one of the most pious tourist circuits in India. The triangle reveals the rich heritage of the state of Orissa. Each of the three jewels in the crown of Orissa has its unique glitter.

The rulers of ancient Orissa left an indelible mark by building spectacular temples, shrines and stupas. The confluence of the religions can be felt in the potpourri offered by the state. A rainbow of the monuments can be enjoyed. Unlike the other rulers of the country they did not build forts for their comfort or mausoleums on the death of their beloved ones but preferred construction of religious shrines where each and everybody could throng without any distinction of caste or creed to find solace. We salute the rulers who thought for the masses.

Your trip to the city will cover the pilgrimages of all the religions whose common center happens to be the city of Bhubaneshwar.
