फिर हम धौली की तरफ़ नकले जहाँ शांति स्तूप देख कर हमने अशोक का शिलालेख देखा जो उनकी प्रतिष्ठा को बयान कर रहा था ।फिर हम वहाँ से सोहोला आना ओडिया नामक एक रेस्ट्रॉं गए जहाँ हमने उड़ीसा का प्रमुख व्यंजन पखला भात का लुत्फ़ उठाया। हर किसी को उड़ीसा में इस व्यंजन का ज़ायक़ा लेना चाहिए।फिर जिंजर होटेल वापस आकर रात को एक रोमांटिक डेट पर हम पैदल ( जो कि बहुत सुरक्षित है) बातों में खोए हुए हाथ में हाथ डाल कर कब पाल हाइट में आक्स्फ़र्ड बुक कैफ़े पहुँच गए पता भी नहीं चला यक़ीन मानिए ये जगह और इसकी कोई भी चीज़ आपको निराश नहीं करेगी । एक हसीन शाम को ख़त्म करने का इससे अच्छा तरीक़ा हो ही नहीं सकता । यक़ीन मानिए भुवनेश्वर ना केवल आपको अपने साथी के क़रीब लाएगा उसके साथ साथ आपको भी अपना दीवाना बना देगा ।Highly recommended places: Khandagiri udaigiri dhauli lingaraja templerecommended hotel to stay: Ginger Jayadeva nagarRestaurant recommended: Oxford cafe cha bar pal heights

Kalinga WarDhauli, a town located 8kms away from the city of Bhubaneswar, is said to be the site of Kalinga War. Kalinga War, fought in 262 B.C, is claimed to be one of the most violent wars in Indian history. The battle was fought between the Mauryan Emperor Ashoka and Kalinga, which was then commanded by a feudal lord. Ashoka won the battle at the cost of hundreds of lives, and this was the changing point in his life, as well as, in Indian history. He adopted Buddhism and swore to never physically harm anyone. Kalinga Mahotsav is organised every year in Orissa to celebrate the indirect victory of peace over war. It takes place at the Dhauli Shanti Stupa every year. The festival includes performances by many martial artists with music and dance. It was held in February this year.
