Rajarani Music Festival


Rajarani Music Festival

Rajarani Music Festival held against the backdrop of the 11th century Rajarani Temple in Bhubaneswar is an evening of concerts.

Celestial music, sublime surroundings and soothing climes of late winter-soul traverses to an elevated sphere leaving you utterly relaxed. Holidays are made with this kind of experience that creates a lasting mark in your mind.

The ambiance is relaxing, entertaining and uplifting. The city has a large assemblage of celebrated temples of which the Rajarani Temple is one of the most conspicuous. It's remarkable for the absence any presiding deity in it. The temple is famous for its ornate deul or compass and the statues of eight Dipalakas guarding the eight cardinal directions of the temple.

The musical evenings are resplendent with excellent performances by the great maestros of Indian classical music creating an allegory of darbari gayans (musical performances in an Indian king's court) of age old histories.

At present, as the capital of an emergent Orissa, Bhubaneswar is a modern city with broad avenues, beautiful parks, attractive Shopping.php centers, excellent htls and restaurants with finger-licking food.

Orissa vis-à-vis India has a great tradition of classical music, instrumental as well as vocal, which fascinate a lot of domestic and international tourists.

To show case the glorious tradition of Indian classical music, the Rajarani Music Festival is organized by the Department of Tourism in association with organizations like Orissa Sangeet Natak Academy, Bhubaneswar Music Circle, NALCO and the Union Ministry of Tourism.

Eminent instrumentalists and vocalists of India have rendered scintillating performance in this festival over the years.

The festival has been an attraction not only to the music lovers but also to the tourists in general.
