Bhubaneswar: (Avilash Panigrahi) Odisha’s newly constructed Krushi Bhawan became India’s first government building and Odisha’s first-ever building to feature in Dezeen, a prestigious international journal on architecture.
The building has been built out of the prize money received by the state government from the consecutive Krishi Karman Awards over the years. It is a tribute to the farmers of the state, glorious Sambalpuri saree and its timeless designs.
Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik took to twitter and shared his happiness on this development.
