Dhauligiri Hills - Review
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.

Dhauligiri Hills, Bhubaneshwar Reviews
As the name says, it's a beautiful place to find your inner peace. The statue of Lord Buddha is gorgeous to look at. Place is clean and well maintained. I have visited this place many times at different time and with different people. The atmosphere is really calm and the top view is superb too. There are few other temples in the campus, which you can visit too. You have to walk in barefoot all the way from the stairs to the stupa. While coming down another road can be taken, which is a little adventurous.
Nice place. Stupa situated in the top of the hill and big big buddha statues are there. Both sides are surrounded by small temples. Side view from the top and cold breeze will refresh your mind. You have to go there by barefoot. Food stall and bathroom facilities are also available.
The place is beautiful with hilltop view and an elegant statue of Gautam Buddha. This is a good place where one can go and be lost in their peace. I have just visited once but will definitely visit again if I am near to this place . Few sage use Buddha's statue as an idol and try to fool people by asking money so that they will help them in getting rid of evil , so beware of those people. There are plenty of them lurking there in the premises.
Being atop a hill gives you a very nice view of surrounding area. Cool breeze, expansive view of entire region gives a pleasant experience. For those religiously inclined, one of the very good stoop in the vicinity. For others would be a good spot to spend some time with friends and family. Being a religious spot, observe all usual restrictions of a buddhist religion.
The place is only for photography nothing much. Everyone is clicking photos only. The view is very nice from there. Visit and enjoy. 😊
