The contribution of Odiya people in building and development of the National Cultural Hub ‘Kolkata’ is significant. Odiya people have traveled to the city since its establishment, which still continues. People from Odisha have migrated to this city during the construction of Kolkata Port seeking job opportunities. Thousands of Odiya labors were engaged in Kolkata Port and Dock. Many were working in Kolkata Port and Railways. Some were living in tile quarters at the Dock East Boundary close to the Dock. Odiya people, wherever they are, never neglect in worshiping the Lord of the Universe, Sri Jagannath. Sri Jagannath is worshipped in every Odiya house since time beginning. Every Odiya starts their auspicious work by reciting the name of Sri Jagannath.
