The rich culture and heritage of the Empire of Utkal or Kalinga, has attracted many a kings from different corners of the great India. They came to visit Puri and have the blessings of Lord Jagannath and the Gajapati King of Odisha. Some of them have preferred to settle here by accepting the offers of Gajapati Kings and also by marring the daughters of local royal families. Due to these new settlements we can find different royal families related to the dynasties of north and South India in our state of Modern Odisha. History says: these loyal chieftains, kings and Zamindars in the past had offered military support to the King of Odisha to keep his empire intact. But due to attack of foreign entities and treachery of the small kingdoms inside, the Empirical rule of the Odishan Kings fell down and before the establishment of democracy this great prowess was only minimized only to a Zamindar. This can be well understood when we look to the pages of Puri & other Royal families further.
