About the Activity:
On this guided walking tour, over two hours you’ll realize why Bhubaneswar, the ancient Kalinga Empire is a testimony of a glorious past marked with myriad religious streaks.
Your walk takes you through tree-lined avenues, stitched with traditional Hindu life in union with Buddhism and Jainism that complete your spiritual odyssey. You will also get to sip on local chai. Around 8am, you’ll start from Mukteshwar Temple, a seat of learning for Hindus also known for its ancient architecture and religious significance. This is one of the four major sacred places here. Head to Parsurameswar Temple, followed by a visit to Bindu Sagar, a holy water tank surrounded by several enchanting temples and ghats. From here you arrive at the last spot of the quadrant, Lingraja Temple. This temple is off-limits to non-Hindus, although thanks to British Viceroy Lord Curzon, foreign travellers can witness it from a specially erected viewing tower. Known for its famous Rath Yatra, this is where you’ll conclude your tour.
Duration: Around 2 hours
