  Monuments :

With a documented history stretching back to 2000 BC, it is no wonder that Odisha is dotted with with ancient monuments ranging from the ruins of Sisupalgarh to the magnificent Lingaraj and Jagannath temples, from the world heritage site of the Konark Sun temple to the exquisitely carved Mukteswar and other such temples. The various archaeological finds at Ratnagiri, Lalitgiri, Udaigiri and other locations prove that Odisha has also been influenced by Buddhist thought. Jainism too has left its mark on Odisha as the rock cut caves at Khandagiri & Udaygiri as well as remains at other locations show.
