Chandka Elephant Reserve

Chandka is an elephant reserve at Bhubaneswar in Khordha District of Orissa. This sanctuary is spread over 193 sq km of rolling table land and small sprawling hillocks.

Chandka Elephant Reserve was originally established to provide refuge for elephants with a view to minimize their depredation. But now apart from elephants, sambhar, bears, wild dogs, pea fowls and pythons are seen in the reserve.

Visitors can have a good view of elephants from the watch towers that have been erected all around. The ideal time to visit this sanctuary is from October to May.

Biju Patnaik Airport and Bhubaneswar Railway Station are the nearest airport and railway station .
