Last night I was delighted to see a tweet @Odisha_Tourism :#WorldHeritageDay will be celebrated by the Department tomorrow. Programme will start at 7:30 am (18 April).

Bhubaneswar is an ancient and modern city that is referred to as the Temple City as it has many temples.

The starting venue for the heritage walk was the RajaRani Temple.                                                       

                                           There were giant hoardings about World Heritage Day in Odia language.
There were many artists in the RajaRani Temple premises.
They had been invited from different places in Odisha to be a part of the World Heritage Day celebrations.
I loved the Carnival-like atmosphere!
There were cool dare-devil acts too. Gosh! We have so much talent!
The walk was flagged off.


Apart from Goddess Durga, we got to walk with Shri Ram, Lakshman, Lord Hanuman and Ravana too!

We saw many ancient temples during the heritage walk.


Such heritage walks are much needed to learn about our city,.

Let us all protect and respect our heritage.

I am proud of our heritage. How about you?

Bhubaneswar is the most deserving to make it to the UNESCO heritage status. 
Hope its treasures are recognized and Bhubaneswar earns its due.
