Bhubaneswar ('The Lord of the Universe') is the capital of Orissa. In Bhubaneswar, Shiva is known as Tribuhuvaneswara or " Lord of the Three Worlds", from which the city derives its name. Beside being the capital of ancient Kalinga, Bhubaneswar is known as Temple Town and Cathedral City on account of its many temples in the extravagant oriyas style. Modern Bhubaneswar is delightfully rural for a state capital that administers the affairs of 25 million oriyas. Bhubaneswar Airport is 3 km from the city centre and almost all the major cities are connected from here.
