Daya River - Review
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.

I love this app
Nice river and way to chilika
This river serve the farmers to provide the water in large quantities in summer.
The Daya River starts as a branch of the Kuakhai River at Saradeipur (near Badahati) in Odisha state in India. It is joined by the Malaguni River below Golabai and flows through Khordha and Puri districts before emptying into the north-eastern corner of Chilika Lake, 37 kilometres (23 mi) from its origin. The historically important Dhauli hills are located on the banks of the Daya River, 8 kilometres (5 mi) south of Bhubaneswar. It is a hill with vast open space adjoining it, and has major edicts of Ashoka engraved on a mass of rock, by the side of the road leading to the summit of the hill. Dhauli hill is presumed to be the area where Kalinga Warwas fought.
