Imaging Chilika #AToZChallenge

Chilika Lake in Odisha is the largest coastal lagoon in India and it is the largest brackish water lake. Covering an area of over 1100 square kilometres, Chilika Lake is a nature-lover's paradise.

Chilika has inspired many poets and writers.
"O Chilika! Your verdant waters are bedecked with swans,
You grant bliss to Kamala, the goddess of Utkala's wellness.
You adorn Utkala like a luminous jewel,
You are indeed the treasure-trove of enchanting beauty"
                                                                                          - Chilika by Radhanath Roy
A seminar and photography exhibition 'Imaging Chilika' was held at Regional Museum of Natural History, Bhubaneswar, Odisha. 
Chilika Lake related photographs were on display. The best ones had won prizes.
Technical sessions were conducted by esteemed guests and speakers.
Every year,  Chilika attracts thousands of of migratory birds.
What is unique about the Chilika Lake that birds keep flocking here? 
Chilika's size, Hydrology, Macrophyte density etc favors the large congregation of migratory birds.
Apart from the international avian tourists, national and international visitors visit Chilika and are awed by its features.
Chilika Lake should be on every travel-lover's list.
