About Cuttack ( latitude: 20.4649700, longitude: 85.8792700 )

Cuttack /ˈkʌtək/ is the former capital and the second largest city in the eastern Indian state of Odisha. It is also the headquarters of the Cuttack district. The name of the city is an anglicized form of Katak which literally means The Fort, a reference to the ancient Barabati Fort around which the city initially developed. Cuttack is also known as the Millennium City due to its history of 1000 years and the Silver City due to its famous silver filigree works. It is also considered as the judicial capital of Odisha as the Odisha High Court is located here. It is also the commercial capital of Odisha which hosts a large number of trading and business houses in and around the city.

The city is spread across an area of 192.5 km2 (74 sq mi), centred on a spit of land between the Kathajodi River and the Mahanadi River, bounded on the southeast by Old Jagannath Road. The city is part of the larger Cuttack Municipal Corporation which consists of 59 wards; in the south the CMC starts across the Kathajodi at Phulnakhara and runs north across the Mahanadi and Birupa to Choudwar, while in the east it begins at Kandarpur and runs west as far as Naraj. Cuttack and Bhubaneswar are often referred to as the Twin-Cities of Odisha.

The metropolitan area formed by the two cities has a population of 1.68 million in 2014. Cuttack is categorised as a Tier-2 city as per the ranking system used by Government of India.
