Konark Festival, Orissa - Fairs and Festivals in India

Bookmark and Share

Konark Festival of classical dances, also known as Konark Dance Festival, is co-organized by Orissa Tourism and Odissi Research Center to provide a platform for the classical dancers in India as well as to act as a showcase for India's cultural depth where dance forms are concerned.

Konark Festival is held over a period of five days, usually from the first to the fifth of February, in the still standing Natya Mandir (dance hall) within the Sun Temple complex. You too can witness the spectacular sight of the floodlit Konark temple as the backdrop to the Konark festival on your tour of festivals in Orissa, with Tourism of Orissa tour packages.

The Konark (Sun) Temple stands in majestic solitude on the Chandrabhaga beach in Orissa. Built in the 13th century, the temple's origin is disputed and numerous folklores revolve around its creation. This world heritage site in Konark, however, is apt for hosting a classical dance festival in Orissa for its ambience left intact by its isolated location, and for its contribution to the revival of Odissi Dance from extinction. As you attend the classical dance performances within the open-air dance hall, under the aegis of the stars, amidst the images of dancers in elaborate poses that constitute Odissi dance, as we know today, it is not uncommon for the audience to be overwhelmed by the rhythm of manjiras, pakhauj, flute and ghungaroos. The graceful gestures, sensuous body language, expressive faces and astounding configurations are for all to see on tours to Konark Festival, with Tourism of Orissa tour packages.

A crafts mela is also put up during the Konark Dance festival. Serving a wide array of delectable cuisines and a variety of handicrafts, this mela adds more fun to the festival thus making it a perfect venue for a family get together on a holiday or a joyous experience to the tourists.

The festival is a potential platform for the performing artiste and the dance connoisseurs both. It also comes as a right opportunity for the budding artists who are yet to make their presence felt on the international scale.

Attended by leading classical dancers, connoisseurs, locals and tourists, the Konark Festival is a celebration of India's diverse dance forms such as Odissi, Bharatnatyam, Manipuri, Kathak and Chau.

A craft mela, efficient catering service and the serene beach are at your disposal on your tour of Festivals in Orissa, with Tourism of Orissa tour packages.
