Welcome to Parija Library
The manuscripts included learned commentaries on the Vedas and Upanishads, writings on aura of knowledge such as Tantra, Ayurveda, Darshan, Jhotish, Ganita, Vyakarana and Alankara. With the help of some of these rare manuscripts, some scholars have been able to trace the profound information on Jayadev’s Gita Govinda exercised on the Odia tradition. Every effort is being made by Parija Library to preserve it as the show case of the precious manuscripts heritage of Odisha.
In 1943 ,with the establishment of University the then Vice Chancellor had appointed a person to collect valuable manuscripts from the different villages of Odisha. Many eminent persons like Artaballava Mohanty & Prof. Karuna Kar have donated all their personal collections to the university. Since then the manuscripts section was built at Bardhaman Kothi, Cuttack and was subsequently transferred to Manuscript Section of Utkal University. Parija Library is the proud owner of a rich collection of rare manuscripts which illuminates different aspects of the glorious intellectual collection of Odisha.
