Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Odisha

Odisha is a very famous region in India. It is known for its temples, monuments, and historic buildings. Odisha is home to many artists and sculptors. Miles of beaches stretch across the edges of the region, forming a border around the many national parks and the local landscapes. While it is a top destination for tourists, most of the region has yet to be discovered.

The area is known for its archaeological marvels as well as its celebration of the arts in India. You can visit the Sun Temple in Kornak, the temple of Jagannath (Juggernaut) in Puri, and the temples in Bhubaneswar for a taste of the religious heritage of Odisha.

If you’re looking to stay in Odisha while on holiday, it is easy enough to find a hostel. There are many in the region, whether you want one by the sea or further inland. The hostels are cheap, large, and well-maintained. They also happen to be within reach of most of the landmarks in the region. Look for a hostel based on proximity to your top destinations in the area.

One of the best things to do in Odisha is to have a beach day. The sun is bright but not too hot, and the sand is golden brown, although the area does feature some white sand beaches too. The coastline of the area spreads across 250 miles, with most beaches yet untouched by humans.

Further inland, you come across rivers, streams, waterfalls, and hills. There are forests full of local wildlife too. In India, Odisha has a reputation for its beautiful national parks and wildlife sanctuaries. Some rare species of plant and animal life can be found here. The region’s parks are also home to the thickest forest of mangrove trees in the world. Undersea life has also been preserved at the Gahirmatha Marine Sanctuary.

Other places you must visit in Odisha include the 11th century Jagganath Temple, as well as the Sun Temple. This was built in the 13th century and is in the shape of a giant chariot, complete with twelve wheels and seven horses to draw it.
