Ashokan Rock Edict, Bhubaneshwar Reviews
Ancient scripts from the time of Asoka written on rocks is preserved at here. The complex is like a small hill with beautiful garden. Watch out for a elephant structure carved on rock which seems as if coming out of a tunnel. Spend some time here on the trip to Dhauligiri with family & friends.
Surreal place, the actual rock engravings of ashoka are placed here. Also the place has a beautiful lawn and a calm and very peaceful vibe to it It showcases peace and the passage of time and the immortaloty of words

Rock Edicts shows the most powerful stratigraphy of Gautam Budhas saint..One Of the Famous Budhist place In Odisha
Though it's commonly known as the Shanti Stupa by nearby people, but it's also known for Kalinga war and Ashokan rock edicts. Present in the outskirts of Bhubaneswar city this place is a prestine natural beauty. Situated on the bank of river Daya it reminds of the Kalinga war when it's said that the war had made the river water red with the blood shed occuring in the war. It reminds of the history from when Buddhism got it's world recognition and spreaded beyond boundaries of India to become a world religion.
Really liked the place, just a little before Shanti stupa, it has been maintained well. Nice garden in the back. The rock where the messages are carved are well protected by enclosure with the carved elephant at the top also well protected from the elements by a roof
