4.Jayadev Vatika:-





 Jaydev Vatika at Khandagiri is rather unassuming even if it’s located closely to two of the most popular tourist destinations i.e., Khandagiri and Udayagiri. But, with better care and strategic promotion, it has immense potential to attract visitors and tourists alike. Ever since its inception in 1992, the government has spent crores on development activities including plantation programs of the park. The park has been named after the legendary poet Jayadev and the project was on the lines of the descriptions of different groves in Jayadev’s literary work Gitagovinda. More than Rs 35 lakh was spent for plantation programs in the park between 1991-92 and 1995-96. Also, the OFDC and the Orissa Tourism Development Corporation (OTDC) have spent more than Rs 2 crore for the development of the park as per the description in the scriptures on Ekamra Vana (old Bhubaneswar) and Vrindavana as described in Gitagovinda.



The wonderful vegetation has 128 varieties of plants from Ekamra Vana and 40 from Vrindavana. Also, medicinal plants numbering over 10 lakh have been planted there. The park, which has the status of poet Jayadev and Radha-Krishna, has become a tourist hub for travelers visiting Khandagiri and Udayagiri caves. The patch of forest inside the Jayadev Vatika is of historical value, as it has existed since the time of Kharavela.



How to Get There: The park is located near Khandagiri and Udaygiri Caves.
