Family Odia from Switzerland designing students joins 74th monks, caves and kings

Bhubaneswar: On a blissful and sultry morning, about 25 hikers took part in the 74th Monks Caves and Kings trail in the Khandagiri-Udayagiri Twin Hills Complex.
Today’s walkers were an enthusiastic and diverse audience, including interior designers from a city-based design school, a Swiss-based Odia family, architects, entrepreneurs and students.
Most of the guests were intrigued by the social media on heritage tours run by the Bhubaneswar Development Authority, Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation and curated by Detour Odisha.
The walk was a journey into the glorious past of Odisha through the sculptures and caves of the Twin Hills of Khandagiri and Udayagiri. Everyone was engrossed in the tales of the monks and kings and their lives of yore. One of the interior designers was really impressed with the rich cultural heritage we have and did not know, even though he lived in the city for many years.
Many of the guests were enthusiastic about the way the walk was conducted and explained in detail and scientifically how the caves and other structures were built around them.
