Kalijai island of Odisha is placed among the Top 10 treasured islands to visit across India by National Geographic Traveller.
The beautiful island in Chilika lake is one of the little-known islands among 1200 islands spread across the country. Away from the regular most visited islands, Kalijai is a must see by any enthusiastic traveller.
The lure of Chilika lake invites many visiters but few explore the island scattered along the Asia’s largest lagoon. Kalijai Island inside the Chilika lake has a temple dedicated to the local goddess Kalijai. Every January, Kalijai Island thrums with pilgrims during the Makar Sankranti fair.
