Konark Festival

 
Held over a period of five years, the Konark dance festival is an endeavor of Orissa Tourism and Odissi Research Center to provide a platform for classical dancers in India, as well as, showcase the various dance forms prevalent in India with style and flavor, reflect the cultural riches and heritage of India and keep it alive and kicking. The majestic and picturesque Sun Temple provides its historical backdrop, where the dance performances take place at Natya Mandir within the temple.

The Konark Dance Festival can also be seen as a befitting tribute to the archaic and architectural grandeur of the famous Sun temple at Konark.
 
Also known as Boita-Bandana festival, Bali yatra witnesses people gathering near river banks or sea shores to float miniature boats (boita) as a symbolic gesture that they will leave for faraway islands of Bali, Java, Sumatra, Borneo and Ceylon (Srilanka) to which their ancestors once sailed.

Celebrated in October-November for five consecutive days before the full moon to memorize the maritime legacy of Orissa, Bali yatra also marks the culmination of all religious festivities held during the month of Karthik.
