Culture of bhubaneswar

Bhubaneswar has a vibrant and rich cultural heritage which is evident in their devotion and excellence to art forms spanning across dance, movies, sculpting and craft work. The famous Odissi dance form, which is the oldest of the eight surviving classical dance forms of India, can be traced back to the temples of Bhubaneswar, as per archaeological evidence. It forms an integral part of their culture and this spellbinding dance is accompanied by Odissi music as well. The Odisha State Museum offers an insight into the city’s gallant past. You can see a huge selection of archaeological relics, weapons and local crafts here. The city hosts a number of cultural festivals like Ekamra Festival (series of fairs and festivals lasting 10 to 15 days) celebrating the culture and cuisine of Bhubaneswar, Kalinga Mahotsav (promoting martial arts), Rajarani Music festival (promoting classical and traditional music), etc. Some of the important religious festivals celebrated are Shivratri, Diwali, Navratri, Ekamra Festival, etc. Seafood, scrummy sweets and mouth-watering street-food form an integral part of the local cuisine. Their large repertoire of seafood culinary delights includes various recipes of lobsters and crabs. Silver filigree work called Tarakasi, stone and woodcarving, paintings, silk and cotton fabrics, bamboo basketry, etc. are some of the city’s renowned local crafts.
