Dhauli hills are located on the banks of the river Daya, south of Bhubaneswar in Odisha. It is a hill with vast open space adjoining it, and has major Edicts of Ashoka engraved on a mass of rock, by the side of the road leading to the summit of the hill. Dhauli hill is presumed to be the area where the Kalinga War was fought. The view from the Stupa is mesmerizing, the beauty is explainable. The Stupa is symbol of Peace, with many forms of Buddha statue.

To sign off form Puri, attending a sand art is of utmost importance, I was fortunate enough to be part of one.
