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.

You will get bored... But the place is not that much worst.... A old monument ... Beautiful idols is lord Buddha is available.... Not a great parking facilities available at there. .... Wheel chair entrance in not available....
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.
It's a good and peaceful place located on top of mountain. U can click nice pic. Try to visit during evening hour as there is a light show. The show is all about its history
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.
