Chilika Lake Bird Sanctuary is located in the state of Odisha and is very near to Bhubneshwar city. It is known to be the largest inland salt-water lagoon in Asia. The lake is spread over an area of 1100 square Kms and acquires the shape of a pear. The sound ecosystem of the lake attracts the various species of birds and water birds.

The park is a home for both native and migratory birds. Chilika Lake Bird Sanctuary is paradise for bird watchers. White bellied sea eagles, greylag geese, purple moorhen, jacana, herons and flamingos are among the many species which make the lake a bird watcher's delight: Chilika, in fact, is home to one of the world's largest breeding colonies of flamingos.
