BUDDHISM IN ODISHA


 Odisha has been a land of multi cultural values and virtues. The equal acceptance towards all religion has gifted Odisha with large cultural, heritable riches which makes it a place of exploration. Buddhism is embedded in many places of Odisha like, Jajpur, Cuttack, Sambalpur, Phulbani, Bhubaneswar etc.  But the major places are the hills of Puspagiri which are a collection of three hills- Lalitgiri, Udaigiri, Ratnagiri popularly known as the “Diamond triangle” of Buddhism in Odisha .
The archeological department was able to trace the remnants and ruins belonging to Buddhist culture and tradition in the womb of these hills. A large number of statues were excavated. The sculptures included the face of Buddha, large and small, Buddha in different positions of meditation.  Some extremely impressive stupas were dug out and along with them a large number of votive stupas. Relics in form of caskets, images with inscriptions, objects of use were some of many things that were excavated. Many monasteries were dug out which were  found to be really complex as per there time. Two storey buildings, with compound walls and floorings, courtyards, apsidal shrines, prayer hall, podiums of mediations can leave you startled and nostaligic.
