The Dhauligiri Hills are an ancient geological formation on the banks of Daya River. This place is historically significant as this is where the Kalinga War took place. Post the war, Emperor Asoka gave up his princely life and started practicing penance. There is also a small temple on the hill that is dedicated to Lord Shiva. But above all is the fantastic Buddhist Chaitya, which is white and golden in appearance and is set up on the peak of the Dhauli Hill. It is one of the very few temples and monasteries that have the statue of Lord Buddha in a sleeping posture. This place is not only popular among the Buddhists but among other tourists as well.
