Dhauli Tourism

Dhauli, a beautiful getaway place in the close proximity of Odhisha. This town is known for its great ironical situation by being significant on one hand for the great Kalinga war between King Ashoka and Kalinga Kingdom in 3rd century B.C. But on the other hand, this place epitomizes peace as after experiencing the massacre during the war, there was a change of heart for Great Ashoka and he led on the path of Buddhism from that time on. The town has many inscriptions on the walls regarding all the reports after the war and what all King Ashoka adopted. It is believed that the war made even the water red. Such abhorrent conditions led Ashoka to the path of harmony and peace and he built the city with the aim of ensuring positive vibes all around. Dhauli has some amazing spots to visit which will help calm down your inner thoughts and assist in reshaping your self.
