Experience Orissa
(how to get the best out of an Orissa holiday)

Orissa tourism is dominated by temples and sea-side experiences. Bhubaneshwar is called the temple city, and has over 400 exquisite shrines. Puri the holy city of Lord Jagannath has one of the most famous temples of India, and is also a favourite sea-side resort. The magnificent Sun Temple of Konark is a World Heritage Site. Gopalpur-on-Sea is another popular draw of Orissa tourism, while the Chilika Lake is the country's largest salt-water lake with a large variety of marine and bird life. For more wildlife, visit Simlipal Tiger Reserve, and Bhitarkanika National Park, a mangrove forest on whose coast the Olive Ridley Turtles come to breed.
