Ratnagiri is a famous Buddhist centre located in the magnificient ambience of Birupa river valley in the Cuttack district of Orissa. Ratnagiri is a beautiful hill and is one among the Diamond Triangle - Lalitgiri and Udayagiri being te other two. It contains valuable collections of Buddhist antiques. Recent excavation held here revealed that, Ratnagiri was a prime centre of Buddhism from the first half of sixth century AD.

Initially, Ratnagiri was a prominent Mahayana sect Buddhist centre, later in the 8th – 9th century it became a focal point of Vajrayana Buddhism. Two large monasteries, Buddhist sculptures, inscribed stone slabs and molded terracotta plaques were unearthed from here.

Bounded by rivers in all the directions, this Buddhist heritage site holds great archaeological significance. The place is located on a small hilltop, which overlooks the vast plains spotted with green hills. Ratnagiri provides the rare opportunity to have a glimpse of ancient Buddhist shrines, sculptures, big stupa, and a large number of votive stupas that are the remnants of a glorious heritage.
