Places Covered : Kolkatta - Bhubaneshwar - Konark - Puri - Bhubaneshwar - Kolkatta
The evolution of British India was inextricably linked with the great Islamic Kingdoms of the East. This tour encompasses the best of the Raj and explores the Islamic and Hindu cultures that co-existed with British rule.

Calcutta, the capital of British India until 1911, is a city whose character has perhaps more than any other, been shaped by the British Raj. Its architecture, monuments and people are a blend of Colonial and Hindu, and you'll become immersed in discovering its bustling and chaotic history. As the sun sets on Calcutta, board your launch for a cruise on the Hooghly River.

Your journey moves from Calcutta to the State of Orissa, on the shores of the Bay of Bengal. Here you leave behind industrial India for the landscape of one of India's most thoroughly rural states, with its numerous carved temples.

Tour the Brahmin temples of Orissa and the many temples at Bindu Sarovars; intricate and detailed carvings abound, from flowers to animals to gods and humans. Outside of Bhubaneshwar, tour the Udaigiri and Khandagiri caves once occupied by Jain monks.

In Konarak, see the famous 13th Century Sun Temple, erected as a glorious tribute to Surya, the sun god. One of the four holiest places in India is the 12th Century Jagannath Temple with its teeming market and bazaar, which surrounds this living temple.
