Bhubaneswar:20/8/18: Around 20 participants who joined the Ekamra Walks today heaped praises for the organisers after visiting monuments in the Old Town area of the Temple city.
Biswaranjan Samal from Dubai, who joined the weekend heritage walk with family was delighted to discover many things which he never found earlier.
“We are monitoring the activities of Ekamra Walks from the beginning. Either from the Facebook posts or from friends we were getting all updates about the only guided walk of the city. As I got the opportunity to take part in the heritage walk, I am really overjoyed after participating in the 88th Ekamra Walks. Now our entire group will try to popularise the event by telling their friends to explore the heritage tour,’’ said Biswaranjan Samal, a resident of the city, currently staying in Dubai.
Another waller, Sushant Mohapatra, another member from the Dubai troupe termed Ekamra Walks as a ‘’great initiative’’.
Overjoyed with the experiences he gathered through today’s heritage walk in the Old Bhubaneswar area, Sushant said, ‘’I knew many things about our own temple architecture, types of temples and the influence of the temple architecture from Kalinga in faraway territories across the Pacific and Indian Oceans, temple traditions and rituals were really interesting things I learnt from such a short experience.’’
