Bhubaneswar is commonly referred to as “Ekamra Khetra” or the temple city. This is because of its intermingling Hindu, Buddhist and Jain traditions and heritage. Back in the day, there were thousands of mediaeval stone temples built in the Kalinga style of architecture. Today, the city welcomes tourists keen on sampling Odia cuisine, attending indigenous festivals and fairs, and catching Odissi dance performances.
