Dhauli Hill Odisha (Orissa)

Dhauli Hills – 8 km south of the present Bhubaneswar, over the Daya stream, Dhauli has significant decrees of Ashoka engraved on a mass of shake. It is ventured to be the zone of the bleeding clash of Kalinga, won by the Mauryan head Ashoka in 265 BC. In spite of the fact that he vanquished, yet the revulsions of having killed more than 150,000 individuals and the hopelessness it delivered on the general population filled Ashoka with regret and realized a sudden difference in heart.

The five chhatris (umbrellas) put on its leveled top speak to five critical parts of Buddhism. This sparkling white twofold story structure remains on a stage with two doors with flights of steps. The stupa, from its birthplace develops as the focal point of love
