Bhubaneswar: The Temple city and the Capital city of Odisha celebrated its 71st Foundation Day on 13th April, 2019.
Bhubaneswar city celebrates its foundation day each year on 13th April as the first Prime Minister of India Jawaharlal Nehru laid the foundation on this day in 1948.
Governor Ganeshi Lal wished the people of Bhubaneswar on the special occasion of the foundation day.
A three-day festival involving a series of cultural and felicitation events used to be organised every year. As the election code of conduct is in place, the foundation day remained relatively a low-key affair this year.
