Bhubaneswar, December 28 (LocalWire) : Braving the biting cold, a group of heritage lovers today took part in the 98th guided ‘twin hill trails’ tour of the temple city.
The group relished the trip to the Archaeological Survey of India protected Jain heritage sites Rani Gumpha and Hathi Gumpha, Udayagiri and Lalatendu caves through the guided tour.
For the group members, the guided trekking helped them connect with the glorious past and historicity of Jain caves in Bhubaneswar city.
To this place even more as now, all these sculptures and inscriptions weren’t just carvings on stone anymore. They became stories, tales of the glorious past.
All of the walkers had positive things to say, and some of them made insightful comments on this initiative.
Lt. Col. R.S. Chaudhary suggested that these types of walks should occur more frequently and should cover more historical sites of Bhubaneswar, because the history and heritage is not limited to just temples.
