The Daya River at Puri has a significant history. The infamous Kalinga War was held by its bank at the time of the great king Ashoka. The war was so violent with bloodshed that the water of the river had turned red with the blood of the victims. This event made Ashoka change his mind to be a generous ruler and the rest is history. The river flows by the Dhauli Hills in Bhubaneshwar. The river is a tributary of the Kuakhai River. Also known as the river of blood, this river plays a significant role in providing the water for the living. You can have peaceful time by the river. Picnics can also be held. Some rock edicts as well as Shanti Stupa, Sadharma Monastery are the nearby attractions.
