Cuttack Travel Guide

Cuttack, the erstwhile princely capital of Orissa lies on the banks of the Mahanadi, Devi and Kathajuri Rivers. Cuttack’s main attractions are it’s 14th century fort Barabati; the 18th century shrine sacred to both Hindus and Muslims called Kadam Rasul with the imprint of Prophet Mohammad’s foot and shops that sell silk and cotton textiles, horn and brass ware and Tarakasi, Orissa’s famous silver filigree.

The city is only a few hours driving time from Bhubaneshwar and worth visiting for a couple of days.

A thousand year old city- also known as ‘Millennium City’ is famed for its Dahibaras and Aludum, a spicy concoction of varas soaked in skim yoghurt, ghunguni-curried chickpeas and potatoes in fiery curry. A must on any tourist’s itinerary!
