One of India’s oldest cities and the business capital of Orissa, Cuttack derived its name from the sanskrit word kataka which stand for a military camp or army protected or for government seat. More than a thousand years, Cuttack has been the capital of Orissa for almost nine centuries.

The city perhaps, is also the grandest showroom of the state due to its world famous filigree works in silver, ivory and brass works, as well as textiles of woven silk and cotton.

A great engineering marvel can also be found here. Cuttack’s river bank is protected by a strong revetment, exemplifying the ancient yet remarkable technological skill of Orissa. Along the banks of the mahanadi river are the ruins of the Fort Barbarati and the earthen mound of the nine-storey palace of the Ganga. Both are silent witnesses of the vicissitudes of the state’s history. The must see attractions of cuttack include Barabati fort & Barabati stadium and much more.
