Toshali Resorts International, the Gurgaon-based hospitality and destination management company which manages four properties in the Buddhist circuit of Odisha has come up with special offering to allure scholars, archaeologists, historians and students to visit, stay and study the Buddhist art and culture of ancient Kalinga dedicated to the Mahayana and Vajrayana sect.
“Only few of the Buddhist heritage sites have been unearthed till now which creates lot of excitement among the visitors due to its artistic beauty. Scholars and archaeologists have taken lot of pain to unravel these hidden treasures because of lack of infrastructure in the past. With the upgradation of accommodation units at these heritage sites to international standards and good connectivity we expect to see lot of research and excavation in near future, which will showcase the glorious past of Kalingan Art and Buddhism to the world. We are hopeful of a surge of 100 per cent in tourist traffic to Buddhist sites of Odisha from domestic as well as inbound segment this year,” said Harihar Patra, Director-Marketing, Toshali Resorts International.
