Lalitgiri also known as Naltigiri is a Buddhist complex in Odisha comprising major stupas and monasteries (viharas), similar to Ratnagiri and, together with Ratnagiri and Udayagiri, part of Puspagiri University. Numerous excavations by the Archaeological Survey of India (A.S.I.) have been conducted since 1985, and continue to this day.
A museum is to be built to display relic caskets thought to contain bones of Gautama Buddha, and other archaeological finds for public display. The site was extensively excavated by the A.S.I. from 1985-92. The remains of a huge stupa, and relic caskets consisting four containers made of khondalite, steatite, silver and gold were discovered along with other important structure and archaeological remains.
This Is 170 K.M. distance from Arpita Beach Resort.
Visited Arpita Beach Resort, Chandipur in March 2016 during Holi. Nice Hotel with comfortable rooms, excellent staffs, clean bathrooms and good restaurant. They had a superb room service. Five minutes walk from the beach.
Got a good deal from go ibibo. Executive rooms were great. Food was decent. Hotel is a bit far from main beach, but there is a beach near hotel backside. Overall good stay. Go for executive rooms as they are pretty big & comfortable.
