Your Career Will No Longer Be A Priority

It’s true that travel will strip you of everything that used to make you happy but what you acquire in this trade-off is much more valuable. Your essential inspiration will never again be cash but experiences. You'll begin to ache for that surge of adrenaline, your break, your next ticket. HolidayIQ Traveller Krupasindh Satapathy from Bhadrak shares, “I visited Rourkela, it is a nice place and it's called the green city of Odisha. I enjoyed the beauty of trees, and many temples like hanuman vatika, vaishno devi temple and many more. The food at Rourkela like gupchup and fast food was good. Rourkela is the silver city where steel plant was established. Overall, a very nice place of Odisha. I like the place a lot.”

Steel city hotel

This is a good and well decorated hotel. The rooms are clean and clear and the main thing is the service which is awesome. I reached Rourkela in the mid night But the servent are very much coperative so that they can help me in that time. I can't find the hotel because the GPS navigation show the wrong place in the map and because of this I can't find it, at the time I dial the hotel number for help and they ask my place address then the help me and solve my problem in a decent way so I must thank the member of the hotel. Thank you.

A Trip to Rourkela

I had been to Rourkela by road in the month of June 2016. Rourkela is a must-visit in the tourism circuit of modern Odisha. The must-visit attractions around Rourkela include the Mandira Dam, Maa Vaishno Devi Temple and the Hanuman Vatika. The Mandira Dam is located 25 kilometers from Rourkela and built across the Sankh river. An added attraction here is the boating facility. The Maa Vaishnodevi Temple was built in 2003 on the lines of the Vaishnodevi Shrine in Jammu and Kashmir. It is located on top of Durgapur hill around 3 kilometers of the city centre. The presiding deity here is goddess Kali, Lakshmi and Saraswati. The Hanuman Vatika houses the statue of Lord Hanuman. The grand iconic statue of Lord Hanuman is about 75 feet high, making it one of the tallest hanuman installations in the region. The Hanuman Vatika is spread over an area measuring 13 acres.
