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.
Best place of Bhubaneswar. Located near the Daya River. Its called Dhaulagiri. Has a lot of significance jn Indian History
There are ancient writing(cravings) in stone. The rock is elephant shaped. Nice place to sit peacefully unless crowded
The place is calm N beautiful with huge garden area The garden is mostly filled with Bhubaneswars love birds Good place for photo session
Place we can see script return during the time of Ashok.some say its written by king Ashoka itself.. it's on the way to Dhauli giri
