Endowed with the bounties of the nature, a rich cultural heritage & the past glories, Gopalpur-on-sea, has been able to reserve a special place for itself, not only in the Odisha map but that it has also in the Map of India. It would not be an exaggeration to say that it has also acquired the significance of being recognised as in international tourist place. While its scenic beauty has attracted many tourists from both in & outside the country. Its geographical conditions have also attracted many industrial giants to setup their ventures over here. But ironically enough, in spite of all these, the people of this region are backward, both economically & educationally.
