Khandagiri Mela began at the foothills of Khandagiri and Udayagiri hills in Bhubaneswar from 12 February 2019.
A large number of saints, monks and followers of various Hindu religious sections from across the country assembled on the outskirts of the smart city for the 10-day-long religious and cultural fair.
Khandagiri ‘Kumbha’ Mela takes off every year – on the auspicious day of Magha Saptami, the 7th day of lunar month of Magha as per Hindu calendar (English month – January or February).
Kiosks selling items such as wooden utensils, bamboo, stone carvings and various household items came up at the Khandagiri Mela.
In addition, visitors can also relish a wide range of local delicacies and enjoy performances by Odia jatra parties lined up in the evenings.
