Konark Dance & Music festival

The Konark Dance Festival is held in December in the beautiful backdrop of the Sun Temple (a world Heritage site) on the Chandrabagha beach at Konark. The ‘Natyamandir’ or the dancing hall of this 700-year-old shrine, with well-adorned sculptures of Odissi dance poses, is a wonder in the true sense of the term. Every inch of its walls have been covered with fine artistic designs of the ancient times. A host of celebrated dancers from across the country perform in the open-air auditorium during the festival which is truly a lavish feast for the ears and eyes involving classical dance and music. The festival is a celebration of the much appreciated Odissi, Bharathnatyam, Manipuri, Kathak and Chau Dances. The enchanting sound of Ghungroo bells, flute and Pakhauj fill the air as well. There is also a crafts fair, which showcases a variety of handicrafts and tasty cuisine during the festival. Rejoice in the rhythmic ambience of music and dance with Indian festival Tours.
