Konark Festival is a festival of Art, Culture & Heritage

Konark Festival is a dance festival held every year in the backdrop of the Konark Sun temple, Indian State of Odisha. This beautiful festival started in the year 1986 at Konark Natya Mandap by its Founder-Director Padmashree Guru Gangadhar Pradhan. This festival has been organized during 19th to 23rd February every year, in the association of the state jointly by Odisha Tourism and Odissi Research Centre. The performances take place in an open-air auditorium against the backdrop of the gigantic sun temple that reverberates with the beats of ‘Raga’ and ‘Tala’. The entire place is filled with the classical music sound and this classical extravaganza is a journey through eternal ecstasy.

Only objective of this festival is to promote the diverse Indian dance heritage and to bring in many artistes in one platform with a sense of brotherhood. It provides a platform to both, performing artiste and the dance connoisseurs. Through this dias, these participants get to appreciate the essence of various classical dance forms of the country. And it proves to be stepping stone for new artists who are yet to make their mark on the international scale. Not only Odissi but different and diverse classical dancer participated in the state like Kathak, Bharatnatyam, Kuchipudi, Manipuri, Mohiniattam and other classical, folk & tribal dances/music of our country. The stage and the atmosphere is magnified by the spiritual and aesthetic flavor, in the natural ambience of casuarinas and cashew trees.

I am a born traveler..... travelling is my passion. I unconditionally love to have my bag packed and carry in my back, walk on streets, hilly slopes. It gives me happiness, Joy and sense of fulfillment . I always suggest friends do not to waste precious time world is waiting for your... Pack your Bag.... Tighten your laces and Live your life Now.... and Ever... The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
