Create an itinerary including Dhauli Giri Hills
As an ancient and sacred site of Buddhism, Dhauli Giri Hills allegedly represents the spot where the Kalinga War was fought well over 2,000 years ago. When you visit, you can see one of the earliest Buddhist sculptures in the form of a rock-hewn elephant. Around the hill stand stupas, pillars, and chaityas, and at the very top, a dazzling white pagoda built in the 1970s. Try to visit early in the day to avoid the massive crowds that often gather at this site. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Dhauli Giri Hills and many more Bhubaneswar attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Bhubaneswar day trip app.

  • Great place with a nice view and history. Bit crowded. There is a lovely temple behind this and must visit it.

  • We visited the place on our way back to Kolkata from Puri. There is a Shiv temple below the Stupa. The Stupa is very well maintained and is definitely must visit while in Puri or Bhubaneswar.

  • Go without much expectations, be at peace. See and be with quiet Budha. Spent quality time in silence. Above is as per a tourist. If ardent fan of Buddhism, then a definite destination for you
  • The most peaceful place as per my outlook. I love this place a lot that I always want to be there. Really soothing , and the location where it is located is just awesome. One of the favourite places on the earth , where I want to visit everyday.
