Ekamra WalksMore than 50 visitors at the 44th Ekamra Walks on Sunday discovered rituals of Diwali.


And, this included the different designs of organic earthen ‘diyas’ as well as Karthik traditions observed by the ‘Habisialis’ inside the Doodhwala Dharamsala as they enjoyed a stroll along the lanes of the Old Town areas hunting for unique temple building architecture, that are beautiful, and marvelously flaunt the Kalingan style.


It was once a city embedded with more than 7,000 temples in the past, according to the old literature of the history, the State Capital.


This was also referred to as the Ekamra Kshetra. Currently the place has more than 360 historic monuments that had come into existence between the 6th and 16th century A.D. The visitors had come from diverse groups and include seven students from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) who were on internship to Centurion Institute of Technology and Management (CUTM).


Two of the visitors hailed from Italy.


Presently they are working with Jeevan Rekha Parishad. And, seven had come from Indian Institute of Tourism and Travel Management, Bhubaneshwar and four others from ICICI Academy of Skills, Bhubaneshwar.


Lucia Pepe from Italy who is currently working with Jeevan Rekha Parishad as a communication expert said that though they had been travelling across India and have resided in Kolkata and Varanasi, the experience in Bhubaneshwar has proven to be distinct. Her friend Viviana has shared similar views, as well as Naomi, Aaron, Emily, Martin, Jin and Ethan from RMIT. They were quite excited to be a part of this cherishable experience.
