CUTTACK

One of Orissa’s oldest cities, this is the best place to shop at in the state. It offers filigree and silverware, horn and brass work, and silk and cotton textiles.

The city has river Mahanadi in the north and river Kathajodi in the south. The stone embankment protecting the river banks speak eloquently of the engineering skills of the 11th century.

Those who are fascinated by history are drawn to the ruins of the Barabati Fort. The fort was built by the Ganga dynasty on the bank of the Mahanadi. Nearby is the shrine of Katak Chandi, the presiding deity of the city.

Qadam-I-Rasool in the centre of the city is sacred to the Hindus as well as the Muslims. This 18th century shrine shelters the footprints of Prophet Mohammad on a circular stone in its central mosque. It has two other beautiful mosques and a music gallery.

Visit the Paramahansanath Temple of Shiva on a holy day. The temple on the outskirts of the town is famous for its water hole (Ananta Garva), which floods the sanctum sanctorium on holy occasions.

Banki, 92 km from Cuttack, has the shrine of Goddess Charchika on the bank of the Mahanadi. The eight-armed deity of Chamunda is worshipped here according to tantric rites. Also on the river bank is Bhattarika. 108 km from Cuttack. It is a beautiful picnic spot with the shrine of Goddess Bhattarika. Another destination for picnickers is Chandikhol, 43 km away from Cuttack, near the hills. Nearby is Mahavinayak, a beautiful spot with a shrine of Shiva. It also draws the devotees of elephant-god Ganapati. The picturesque Chhatia, 30 km from Cuttack, has several shrines and the remains of an ancient fort.

With the Saranda mountain in the west and river Mahanadi in the south, the Ansupa Lake is a haven for migratory birds in winter. The lake offers facilities for boating and fishing. It is 70 km from Cuttack.

Naraja, another scenic spot on bank of the Mahanadi, boasts of many Buddhist images. It is 15 km from Cuttack.

Niali Village, 47 km from Cuttack, is known for its shrines and archaeological Sculpture Shed. Madhab, a nearby village, is an enchanting picnic spot on the bank of river Prachi – also famous for shrine of Radha-Madhab.

Set amidst the green forests of Mahagiri Hills, Ashokajhar beckons the adventurers. It is 90 km from Cuttack, but the motorable road ends at Sukinda.

You may trek the remaining 10 km or hire an auto-rickshaw.

A scenic spot as well as a famous shaiva centre, Dhavaleswar, only 35 km by road, is a small island in Mahanadi. A Panthasala (Tel. 20264) provides accommodation to the visiting tourists.
