Socio Cultural and Religious Aspects of Images in Odisha

Dr. Chakradhar Behera

Abstract :

The cultural heritage of Odisha beautifully comes out in the form of its awesome art and craft items and amazing folk performances. Odisha is largely rural and the traditional values that are still retained form an integral aspect of the Odishan culture. Odishas strategic geographical location has engendered the assimilation of the culture of the Aryans and the Dravidians. The culture of Odisha can very well be described as an Indo–cultural synthesis. Odisha serves as the coastal passage between the northern and southern parts of India. It is because of this geographical location that the people belonging to both Aryan race and the Dravidian race make up the population of the state. Odisha is known for its respect and mutual tolerance towards other religions. It is owing to this fact that, the culture of Odissi people reflects some aspects of all the major religions of India.
