Dhauli is a town that is located in the Indian state of Orissa. This town is located very close to the capital city of Bhubaneshwar, at a distance of around eight kilometers from the city. Dhauli is the famous site where the Kalinga War was fought, bringing about a change in the life of Emperor Ashoka. Dhauli Hills are considered sacred by many, and there are many important temples and rock cut caves present in this location. Engravings and inscriptions from the time of Ashoka can also be seen in Dhauli. Dhauli Hills serve as a pilgrimage site for both Buddhists and Hindus alike. There are many stupas in Dhauli that you can see, and these were once built by the emperor Ashoka himself. Monasteries that depict the change in Ashoka’s life can also be seen in Dhauli. Dhauli is thus the right destination for any spiritually or religiously inclined individual.

You can visit the Japanese Peace Pagoda located in Dhauli during your trip to the town. Set amidst many ancient stupas and monasteries, this is a splendid structure that’s worth a visit.

You can visit the Shiva temple located atop Dhauli Hills, and also the Saddharma Vihar Moastery and Shanti Stupa.
