Odisha, formerly known as Orissa, is an Indian state on the subcontinent's south-east coast, by the Bay of Bengal. It is the contemporary name of the ancient kingdom of Kalinga, which was invaded by the Mauryan Emperor Ashoka in 261 BC. It is also named as Utkal which is mentioned in the national anthem of India.
Bhubaneswar is the capital of Odisha, and home to nearly a thousand temples. Cuttack, the former capital of Odisha, is 22 km from Bhubaneswar. With the rapid expansion of two cities and better road connectivity, the two cities are now almost conjoined and considered as twin cities. The city of Puri is about 60 kilometers from Bhubaneswar and lies on the coast of the Bay of Bengal. Puri is considered a holy city and the abode of the deity Lord Jagannath. It is one of the Char Dham (Four holy places) of Hinduism. The world-famous "Car Festival" (Rath Yatra) is celebrated every year in the Hindu month of Ashadha (Mid June to Mid July) in Puri.
