Tour Details

Culturally captivating and an excellent introduction to the heritage of Odisha, often known as the Golden Triangle of East India this tour takes you across three destinations – Puri, Konark and Bubaneshwar.

An embodiment of art, culture and architecture, Konark, Odisha is best known for it’s mesmerising Sun temple. Built by King Narasimhadeva during the 13th century CE, and known as or Black Pagoda by European soldiers (being close enough to the shore, it was used for navigational purposes, its tall towers black), this UNESCO World Heritage Site is a stunning example of Kalinga architecture. Now in ruins, it sits as a reminder of the grandeur of the Eastern Ganga Dynasty.

Built in the form of a massive ornamental, 12 wheeled chariot, the tremple is symbolic of Surya, the Sun God traversing the skies, at radid speed, in a chariot pulled by seven horses. Overwhelming with iconography, every detail at the Temple of Konark has a tale to tell, beautifully adorned with intricate sculptures illustrating stories of everyday mortal life and culture as well  mythology and and sacred Hindu texts.

Another important highlight of this tour is the famous Hindu temple of Jagannatha ( known as the White Pagoda) in Puri. Reaching a height of about 214 feet from ground level, it is one of India ‘s tallest monuments built in the 12th century A.D. Adorned with intricate carvings and fascinating sculptures, the temple is one of the best examples of the Kalinga style of architecture.

On this holiday, explore the beach town of Puri, the mystical ruins of Konark and the heritage city of Bubaneshwar.
