About Dhauligiri Hills, Bhubaneshwar

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

  • The historic place near Bhubaneswar. On top of a small hill, accessible by car, bus or bike. Surrounded by peace of forest, essence of Lord Buddha is all around. The Buddhist temple with real Buddhism chants by disciples makes parts of the place magical. Yet, there are separated and authorized spaces for Picnic enthusiasts. Interestingly, Non Veg cooking and playing live loud music is allowed. Too good a historic place for visiting with family, or having a safe yet flexible place for having a PICNIC, either with family or with Team mates

  • Wow! What a nice place to be in! It had rained heavily the previous night and the surroundings landscape was beautiful. One will find a lot of “Shanti” (peace) here. Thanks to the rain, there was hardly any crowd and that made it more peaceful and we could enjoy the serene atmosphere. One should visit this place.

  • It's a nice place that bears historical mementos. The landscape is a sight to behold. There's a local small market where you can buy sorts of things like purses, bangles, etc. The ride to this place is quite enjoyable. The atmosphere is serene and sublime. A place where time flies by.

  • Most beautiful, scenic and peaceful place in Bhubaneswar. As its name suggests its a symbol of peace. And truly, Being there itself will give you immense peace and happiness. And to gain knowledge about this symbol of peace, the light and show sound show in the evening is a must watch. Will give you goosebumps.

  • Its quite high enough. Big temple with lots of architectural works. You can take pictures and enjoy the beauty of the natural history. Very quite and having basic requirements..
