About Visit Ashokan Rock Edict

If you are a history enthusiast, Ashokan Rock Edict is the place for you. The Great Battle of Kalinga was fought here by King Ashoka. The elephant carving and crafts on rocks are 2300 years old. The surrounding is peaceful. There is a great banyan tree the hanging branches of which clutch the ground. Also, the ancient stone carving of the elephant head here is a witness to the great change from violence to non-violence. The place offers a 360-degree sight of Bhubaneshwar from the peak of this memorial. The old language carved in rock is interesting to see. The age, meaning, message and history of this place is exceptional. It's a wonderful piece of history, the first edict after the Kalinga war and Ashoka embraced Buddhism. The carvings are inscribed on a rock and is housed beyond a glass. There is a beautiful elephant outside the glass enclosure.
