About Bhubaneswar:

The state of Orissa, of which Bhubaneswar is the capital, is located in
the eastern part of India between Bengal and Andhra Pradesh. There are
convenient air and surface transportation to Bhubaneswar. The area offers a
number of fascinating activities for visitors: many historic shrines built
by Hindus, Buddhists and Jains; a range of handicrafts and handwoven
textiles, and opportunities for enjoying the distinctive art forms of this
region. The areas around Bhubaneswar have several major attractions. The
magnificent Sun Temple of Konark (known to generations of sailors as Black
Pagoda) is internationally renowned.
Puri and Konark -- both within 30 miles of Bhubaneswar --
have beautiful beaches,
and the Chilika Lake (about 60 miles from Bhubaneswar),
the largest brackish water inland lake in Asia,
abounds with migratory birds and many varieties of fish. Close to
Bhubaneswar is the Chandaka Forest, a sanctuary for wild elephants, and
Nandankanan Zoological Park, a botanical garden that includes the largest
lion and tiger safari in India. The Udayagiri and Khandagiri hills at the
outskirt of the city have a network of man-made caves dating from the first
century B.C. Presently, Bhubaneswar offers a great promise to IT industries
enthused by several liberalisation policies of local government. Some
nationaly renowned IT industries have started operating from the city.
It is the fastest growing city in the eastern coast of India.
