Bhubaneswar, Khurda District, Odisha
This beautiful Mansion was once an exclusive hunting resort of an Indian King hailing from Panchakote Raj state of West Bengal, in the eastern part India. Now converted into a very beautiful, eco friendly Heritage Homestay by his descendants. This two-storied mansion is built in laterite stone, and is situated close to the city of Cuttack in Odisha, near the forest and hills of Dalijoda range, which gives a scenic backdrop to the palace.

Two large water bodies in the foreground gives it a serene touch and tourists can enjoy an alfresco dinner next to the water on a moon-lit evening. This former hunting lodge is built like a chateaux inspired by European styles with its arched windows and doors fitted with multi-coloured glass.

This is perfect for people experiencing the burnt-out of urban living. We (my aunt, uncle, and I) wanted to cherish our time together with long walks and conversations in the lap of nature. But, we were in no mood for roughing it out. Kila Dalijoda was an ideal get away. Great hosts, great food, and an old hunting lodge—it couldn't...
