The town of Sambalpur is located in the Indian state of Orissa. Sambalpur, set in the banks of the Mahanadi River, is a very popular tourist destination. The region once housed an ancient town during the 2nd century AD and is now an important commercial and trade center.

There are many important places in and around Sambalpur that you can visit during your trip to the region. The most important tourist hotspot among these is the Huma Temple, which is located near Sambalpur. This temple was built way back in 1670 by Baliyar Singh, a Chauhan King. The dome of this temple leans slightly to one side, and for this reason it is also called as the leaning temple.

Ushakothi Wildlife Sanctuary, which lies at a distance of around twenty two kilometers from Sambalpur, is another tourist hotspot and holiday destination. Families travel to this sanctuary from in and around the region in order to spend their weekends here. Many species of animals like tigers, leopards and deer can be spotted in this sanctuary.

You can also visit Hirakud Dam during your stay in Sambalpur. Activities like boating and water sports are popular here.
