English: Odisha, formerly known as Orissa, is a state of India, located on the east coast of India, by the Bay of Bengal. It is the modern name of the ancient nation of Kalinga, which was invaded by the Maurya Emperor Ashoka in 261 BC. The modern state of Odisha was established on 1 April 1936 at Kanika Palace, Cuttack, as a province in India, and consists predominantly of Odia speakers. 1 April is therefore celebrated as Utkal Divas (Odisha Day). The narrow, level coastal strip, including the Mahanadi River delta supports the bulk of the population. Odisha is bordered by the states of Andhra Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and West Bengal. Bhubaneswar is the capital and largest city of the state of Odisha.
