Tourism in Odisha

Though Odisha lacks iconic tourist attractions like in North India, the state is gaining popularity as an offbeat travel destination. The state has very diverse topography, right from the Eastern Ghats to a fertile river basin, which is a suitable habitat for native flora and fauna. Mountain springs and hot-springs abound in Odisha and most of the rivers have waterfalls - either at the point of origin or over the mountainous bed. The Chillika, a salt water lake is spread over three districts; Puri, Khurda and Ganjam. The Ansupa, a sweet water lake lies in Cuttak district.

The state is noted principally for religious attractions such as the Lingaraja Temple in Bhubaneswar, the Jagannath Temple in Puri and the Sun Temple in Konark. Other famous tourist attractions in Odisha are: Puri beach, Chillika Lake, Bhitarkanika Sanctuary, Simlipal National Park, and Udayagiri and Khandagiri Caves.
