Orissa Buddhism Tour Package
Tour Overview

The state of Orissa has many temples and wildlife hubs quite popular among the tourist circle of the country. But the state is also known enough for its Buddhist heritage. Many Buddhist structures such as Chaityas, stupas, caves etc and also Buddhist excavation sites present in the state talk about a strong influence of Buddhism over the state of Orissa. In the ancient times, Orissa was referred to as Kalinga.

This is the same place where the great battle of Kalinga was fought killing thousands and that landmark historical event that led to the transformation of Samrat Ashoka from Chand Ashoka to dharma Ashoka. After seeing all the bloodshed in the battlefield of Kalinga, Emperor Ashoka was deeply grieved and repented. He took refuge in Buddhism with the intention of washing away his sins and soon after constructed several Buddhist edifices in and around Orissa. This 3 Nights / 4 Days Buddhist pilgrimage trip of Orissa will take you on a tour of all the Buddhist destinations that Orissa is known for.
