Cuttack is the commercial capital of Odisha. The name Katak is derived from Sanskrit, and means ‘military establishment’.

These two cities are jointly referred to as Twin Cities. Cuttack is well known for its indigenous silver filigree works (Tarakasi) and woven textiles. The National Highway 5 passes through the city.

Horrible journey. Bus quality is very bad. It was not punctual also. Never try for this bus.
In fact this was my first experience in an all night A/c. Bus. Thanks to the unavailability of Railway reservation tickets that I had this wonderful experience. Thanks to the Team of Dolphin Bus Service for making my exciting experience. Pratap Babu of Dolphin Cuttack office was a great help. I shall advice anyone traveling in a luxury bus to BBSR/Puri/CTC to avail Dolphin. Thank you Mr. Driver, for driving so beautifully. hope to travel again, if given a chance.Only bad experience was that a group of guys occupying the extreme rear seats were howling most of the night and this is not good. This kind of behavior should not be allowed, because it might be a black scar in the Moon.Regards. Sunny ( Sunanda)

A lot of jerks.. Ended up having body pains and even the driver drives it very recklessly.
