Barely a couple
of km away from the magnificent epitome of
medieval temple architecture and craftsmanship
of Orissa – The Sun Temple at Konark,
The pristine beach offering spectacular panorama
of hide and seek of nature as the sun rises
and sets before ones eyes with its full grace,
filling the sky with an array of bright colors
each time and take tourists by awe.
A major commercial
seaport of Orissa, Paradeep also is a potential
tourist spot with its clean and clear beachside
bordered by a vast expanse of golden sand dotted
Also an estuary to the mighty river Mahanadi, Paradeep
is endowed with evergreen forests, islands and creeks
to enchant tourists, besides a refreshing marine
drive and frolic on the clear beach.
One of the many
small islands on ‘Chilka’ – Asia’s
second largest brackish water lagoon, Rajhans island
is bound on one side by the mighty Bay of Bengal
and on the other side by the lagoon itself.
Hardly a 15-minute stroll from the protected waters
of Chilka, Rajhans is a promising and beautiful
getaway with a white verdant beach, offering opportunity
to spot dolphins during a motor launch ride.
