Rock edicts of Asoka, Odisha (India)

There are multiple edicts of Ashoka and spread across various countries including India, Bangladesh, Afganistan and Pakistan. Odisha state has some of these which have some messages by Ashoka which is influenced by him follower-ship of budhhism. While in Bhubaneshwar, we also planned to visit Rock edicts of Asoka. This Photo Journey shares some of the photographs along with some information.These rocks with edicts of Ashoka are covered with glass, so that visitors don't do anything to the rock which may impact the quality. It's a better way to keep heritage little safe. Unfortunately tourism is destroying lot of heritage in our country. So responsibility lies with all of us to respect these places and be aware about keeping them clean.There are different views about Ashoka's association with Buddhism and like many other historical stories, it's extremely difficult to know which one is correct and upto what extent. And practically it depends on who written about these historical events and how much bias was there. Even today 2 different people would describe our leaders in different ways. I don't want to mentions the names but pick any and think about 2 extreme thoughts about those.As per few recent articles in Hindustan Times, Asoka was one of the most cruel kings and following buddhism was just a political stunt. While there are some articles which say that after few wars Asoka felt bad about the blood-shed and then started following buddhism.Most of the things written on these rocks encourage peaceful events and empathy for other things on earth. Some of these edicts are little abstract and say much bigger things, which may not occur to your mind at first glance. All this makes these edicts more special.Try to read these boards. These are english and hindi translations of what is written on these rocks. Original edicts are carved in magadhi script. Some portions of it are decaying with time. And it's difficult to preserve the heritage in these coastal regions of the country.More about Edicts of Asoka can be checked at.

If you liked this post and found it helpful, I would request you to follow these things when traveling -

- Manage your waste well and don’t litter
- Use dustbins. Tell us if you went to a place and found it hard to locate a dustbin.
- Avoid bottle waters in hills. Usually you get clean water in hills and water bottles create lot of mess in our ecosystem.
- Say big no to plastic and avoid those unhealthy snacks packed in plastic bags. Rather buy fruits.
- Don't play loud blaring music in forests of jungle camps. You are a guest in that ecosystem and disturbing the locals (humans and animals) is not polite
