Abstract:
This article tries to highlight on how historical maritime trade of Odisha achieved compelling and impressive socio-economic complexity during the ancient time. The impact of this can be seen in places like Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia. Apart from trading in goods there were also trading in relations, thereby leading to the spread of culture or acculturation. The significance of Bali Jatra can be seen as a pompous fair that is celebrated as a tribute to ancient maritime trade. Bali Jatra the name itself signifies the journey of Odisha's sea traders to Bali. Folklores related to maritime history of Odisha also showcase the existence of Odiya sea traders from time immemorial.
