Bhubaneswar is an ancient city, with a historical record that goes back to 4 BC. It was the site of Kalinga Nagar, the capital of the Chedi dynasty who ruled the area. Bhubaneshar is known for its many beautiful Hindu temples, over 500 in number, which represent all the phases in the development of Kalinga temple architecture.
The archaeological remains at Dhauli, and the hills of Udayagiri and Khandagiri provide evidence of both Jain and Buddhist settlements around Bhubaneswar in the first two centuries BC.
