Cuttack is the former capital of the state of Odisha in East India. It is the headquarters of the Cuttack district.[1] Cuttack is nicknamed the "Millenium City" as well as the "Silver City".[2] This is because of its 1000 years history and its famous silver jewelry works.[2] The High Court of Odisha is located in Cuttack.[3] Cuttack is also called as the commercial capital of Odisha. This is due to the large number of trading and business houses in the city.[4]
