Holiday Destination: Rourkela

Rourkela is counted amongst the beautiful cities of Orissa. It emerged on the national panorama with the onset of steel plants in 1955. Located on the banks of Brahmani River, Rourkela holds the distinction of being the second largest city of Orissa. In the local dialect, the term ‘Rourkela’ means ‘our village’.
