Dhauli shanti stupa is located in the bank of river Daya and it is 25km away from Patia Square Bhubaneswar. In the tittle, I mentioned historic place because dhauli hill is the area where KALINGA WAR was fought and after the war Daya river turned into red withe the blood of many people. After seeing the river with full of blood Ashoka realized the cost of the war and he decided to adopt Buddhism after that he build several's stupas and pillars in Dhauli. The information contained here is best of my knowledge and this is not the complete history of Dhauli.

Day 1

In the morning me and my friends decided to visit the dhauli shanti stupa and after that we book a taxi from patia chowk bhubaneswar to dhauli shanti stupa and the fare of the taxi was approx Rs 400 so it cost Rs 100 per person because we are four friends. its take 1 hr approx to reach the destination. You can enjoy the views of hills in the way of shanti stupa. It is a beautiful place to visit in Bhubaneswar. You can feel the fragrance of peace and Buddhism in the air of the dhauli. You can enjoy the peace and nature at the shanti stupa and you can also enjoy the light and sound show in the evening at shanti stupa.
