Shanti Stupa In Dhauli
Recently I visited Dhauli, the Shantistupa (peace sentinel) which is 15km away from Bhubaneswar, capital of Orissa. It is a tourist place where the road connectivity is good. One can travel by private & Govt. buses or by hiring a taxi. Dhauli is a Buddhist destination surrounded by lush green area having natural set up. Owing to render special services, Govt. of Orissa & India have taken visible initiatives in building up Pantha Nivas and restaurants, with a view to maintain law and order and to advert any untoward accidents/disturbances, massive preconditions have been undertaken.
The historical reasons and facilities provided there, attract tourists from every nook and corner of the world. When King Ashoka won the Kalinga war in year 262BC defeating with unkind and blunt nature. He turned from 'Chandashoka' to 'Dharmashoka' after seeing the red color of Daya river water which was filled with the blood of kalings. In addition, its peace atmosphere, good connectivity, protection and security for tourists are the grand realities for which a traveler can visit Dhauli. Last but not the least, Dhauli was built by king Ashoka for the propagation of Buddhism which makes it an important Buddhist pilgrimage destination.
