Best time to visit ratnagiri

En route from Bhubaneswar to Kolkata, in a 20-km radius, lie reminders of a Buddhist culture that flourished in this region through the first millennium CE. The Ratnagiri site, the first to be excavated in the 1950s, dates back to the time of the Gupta king Narasimha Gupta Baladitya (early 6th century CE). It was a major Buddhist centre of education and monastic life till the 11th century. Ratnagiri (Hill of Jewels) is located on a small hilltop overlooking the vast plains dotted with hills in the distance. There are two Buddhist monasteries here. The entrance to the former has beautiful carved statues of Vajrapani and Lokeshwara. Check out the 10-foot high Buddha in a serene meditative pose. There are sculptures from Hindu mythology as well. The second monastery has a lovely lifesized granite statue of the Buddha.
