The magic of Dhenkanal

Dhenkanal is a quiet little town in the middle of nowhere, Odisha. Surrounded by little hills that are small enough to tempt you to climb them and large enough for you to spend hours staring at them, Dhenkanal has the charm of the medieval times. Interestingly however in a location where constructions are so far and few between, the region has excellent roads that ensures a constant tourist flow. There are several places to see around the region and one of the biggest highlights is the mysterious and famed Kapilash temple, located on the top of a hill that you have to climb more than 1500 steps to reach.

Beauty of dhenkanal

In spite of the sparse population and an extremely laid back nature to the district, Dhenkanal has some of the best colleges in Odisha and in fact, India. The IIMC (Indian Institute of Mass Communication) is one such example.

The right time to visit Dhenkanal is during the Laxmi Puja in October when the entire town comes alive. Unlike the carnival during Durga Puja in the neighbouring state of Bengal, Odisha has a much longer and sustained celebration during Laxmi Puja that goes on over two weeks. Families and communities come together to celebrate this event and you can understand the spirit of the festival weeks ahead when the frequency of guests coming over for chit chat increases.

Dhenkanal also boasts of an extended market place that sells everything one can imagine available in a metro. For people looking to collect authentic Odiya artefacts, sample the most genuine Odiya cuisine or experience the true culture of the state, Dhenkanal is the place to be.

What is the purpose of Vending Zones in Dhenkanal?

Dhenkanal town have few vending zones and district authority made these sheds to distribute to vendors to sell different daily use good to customers instead of sitting on pavement or unauthorized places.

After these vending zone made, it looks like this is just a waste of money if not distributed. Bhubaneswar we believe built same but effectively opened shops like vegetables, books, fruit stall, flower stall etc which not only looks good but city attract more customers daily.

If Possible can we make dhenkanal more organize and beautiful?
