Sambalpur comes with a reputation as a unique land packed with historical structures, exotic wildlife, natural splendour in the forms of green forests, undulating hills, waterfalls, and a rich tribal life. Referred to as Sambalaka, a diamond trading centre in 2nd century AD, in Ptolemy’s text, the area is associated with the 8th century celebrated ruler Indrabhuti, the teacher-founder of the Vajrayan sect of Buddhism.
A district headquarter town and an important commercial centre, Sambalpur is famous for its textiles, particularly its tie-and-dye Ikat work, also popular as Smabalpuri. The folk dance Karama, especially on the festive occasion of Bhardrav Ekadashi (August/September), is entertaining and a special attraction for the visitors.
