Dhauligiri Photo Gallery

Eight kilometers south of Bhubaneswar, Dhauligiri is located on the bank of River Daya. It is here the ancient Kalinga War was fought in 261 B. C., where Ashoka The great unsheathed his sword and fought the most bloody battle and it is here after the battle he was transformed to Ashoka - The Compassionate who Championed the cause of Buddhism. On the foot of the hill there are the Rock Edicts of Ashoka near the Elephant structure. The Japan Buddha Sangha and Kalinga Nippon Buddha Sangha have recently built the Shanti Stupa atop the hill which is visible miles around. There is also a Sive Temple recently constructed on the top of the hill.
