Where History Is Lost In Sands of Time
During ancient times, Gopalpur served as an important port for the seafarers of ancient Kalinga. Even during the World War –I, it was an important military port where soldiers used to embark on a journey to Burma.
Gopalpur was the place where the first ever modern hotel was built in Odisha and probably the first ever beach resort of the country. The Palm Beach Resort was built in 1914 by an Italian gentleman by the name of Signor Maglioni to cater to the merchants and businessmen. The hotel was bought by the Oberoi group of hotels in 1948 in what was the group’s first venture into the hospitality business. Currently the hotel is owned by the Mayfair Group of Hotels.
The casuarina groves that line up the sun kissed beach makes for enchanting sight. The beach is mostly secluded and one of the cleanest beaches in the country.
