Formerly known as Orissa, Odisha is a state in eastern India located on the Bay of Bengal. It is best known for its many ancient Hindu temples and tribal cultures, as well as being a destination for beaches and eco-tourism due to its abundant greenery and wildlife.
First and foremost, Odisha stands out due to its massive number of ancient temples which beautifully portray architecture distinct to the region. One of the best known of these is the Lingaraja Temple at Bhubaneswar, thought to have been built by the Somavamsi Dynasty in the 9th century and still an active site today where Shiva is worshipped as Harihara, a combined form of Vishnu and Shiva. The Konark Sun Temple is another sought out destination as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. The complex was built in the 13th century in the shape of a gigantic chariot with elaborately carved stone wheels, pillars, and walls. The Jagannath Temple of Puri is another of the best known temples, as well as an important pilgrimage destination. It is particularly visited by devotees of Supreme lord Sri Krishna and is one of the 'Char Dham' pilgrimages that a worshipper is expected to make in his or her lifetime. These temples and hundreds more dominate the skylines of Odisha and are central to the region's culture.

With about 500 kilometers (311 miles) of coastline, Odisha is also home to many beautiful beaches. Some of these include Chandipur Beach, Gopalpur-on-Sea, Konark Beach, Astaranga Beach, Talsari Beach, Pata Sonapur Beach, Satpada Beach, Baleshwar Beach, Paradeep Beach, Satabhaya Beach, Gahirmatha Beach, Puri Beach, Ramachandi Beach, and countless others.
