Members of a hardline Hindu organisation have protested against the visit saying it was a violation of the "sovereignty" of the country.
The violence in Kandhamal district left at least 40 people dead and more than 25,000 homeless.
The riots followed the killing of a Hindu religious leader and four others. A local leader of the hardline Bajrang Dal Subas Chouhan has criticised the Orissa government for allowing the delegation to visit Kandhamal. "It seems the state government wants the riots to return," he said.
