A visit to Buddha’s Stupa at Dhaulagiri in Bhubaneshwar!!

After visiting all the scheduled landmarks in Bhubaneshwar, I had enough time with me to go and visit Dhaulagiri situated on top of a hill and a very important landmark in Bhubaneshwar.

Dhaulagiri or locally known as Dhauli, is known for its Sanchi Stupa and Peace Pagoda.

This is one of the places where Lord Buddha would pray for peace and would spread his learnings to the community.

Since this stupa is placed atop a hill, one can get excellent panoramic views of Bhubaneshwar city, the green paddy fields and fantastic views of the meandering rivers.

  1. Very informative post. Thanks for sharing. Check out Lingaraja temple also, the largest temple in Bhubaneshwar which offer some breathtaking architecture! Dedicated to Harihara, a combination of Lord Shiva and Lord Vishnu, this massive temple is the largest in Bhubaneshwar.
