The popular Ekamra Walks is going to give tourists and even local people an ‘experience’ of a different sort: A guided Museum Walk, beginning this weekend.

 The inaugural walk will be held at the newly-opened Odisha Crafts Museum Kala Bhoomi for handicrafts and handlooms at Talabania near Gandamunda, along the Pokhariput-Khandagiri Road. The first Museum Walk will be held between 3.30pm and 5pm Saturday.

The Walk is slated to be an important activity to create awareness among people about the history and culture of Odisha. It can motivate tourists and local population to visit rich cultural, archaeological and architectural sites. The Museum Walk experience could also sensitise local people about the rich past and in turn help them preserve and conserve their own culture and inculcate a sense of pride in their heritage. Museum Walk can also be effectively be used to initiate community-based efforts for conservation and preservation of heritage, art and crafts.
