The Ratnagiri Odisha Buddhist Circuit is an anachronism of the rich Buddhist times, when the fourth largest religion was scaling great religious heights in this part of Odisha. While visiting this region that comprises a famous Buddhist pilgrimage place that introduces one to the most serene and natural environs that a materialistic world just cannot offer us. So this was all that my Odisha tour started with. To make sure that I can easily and in detail explore the Buddhist Heritage of Orissa, I checked in at Toshali Ratnagiri, a resort that caters to all accommodation needs of travelers in Ratnagiri.
Being at such a place where one can be at peace with the inner self was truly something that I had been looking up after being fed up with the burdened city life. So when life gave me this much awaited lifetime holidaying opportunity I never wasted even a single span and was ready before the final departure sound. One of the most amazing things that I experienced here that consolidate the beauty of the place is the fact that it is surrounded by Kimiria, Mahanadi, Brahmani and Birupa rivers from all directions.
The day I decided to head out and learn something more about this wonderful place that continues to be the sites of numerous excavations with each one bearing up some of the most ancient stupas of Buddha in Different poses in different sizes and structures. While the monastery at the Buddhist complex Ratnagiri was really a splendid experience stepping ahead and witnessing in detail each of its style and structure that framed 24 cells, a courtyard as well as a shrine. So if you too wish to leave away all your city hustle and bustles then, being in touch with Buddhism in Ratnagiri Orissa is surely the perfect escape for you.
