  1. Bhubaneswar is a great place to visit in the winter season. Tourists from all over the India and even from foreign countries come here to get the the real charm of ancient kalinga. I remember when I visited to the city before five years ago, the city was so pleasant and beautiful. There are many sightseeing places to visit. I couldn't complete visiting all these places even in three days. So I extended my sojourn for two more days. However, my hotel was a great place to stay. It is a budget hotel in Bhubaneswar, but they don't compromise in giving good service.
