Bhubaneswar is called as the 'Cathedral City of India'. It was once the capital of an ancient Kalinga kingdom. Bhubaneswar meaning 'The Lord of the Universe' is also the modern capital of Orissa. There was a time when it used to have over 7,000 shrines.

The city forms an integral link in the Golden Triangle along with the holy city of Puri and Konark.
