Are you looking for a destination to spend your holidays? Puri is one of your best answer. Puri offers a lot of tourist spots for a memorable vacation. Plus there are many good hotels in Puri to make your stay comfortable & memorable.

The holy city of Puri, in the state of Orissa, is famous for the temple dedicated to Lord Jagannath an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Puri is situated at a distance of 60 kms from the capital city – Bhubaneswar. It is well connected by roads& railways. The nearest airport is in Bhubaneswar- the Biju Pattanaik Airport. Puri is also one of India’s Char Dhams which are 4 of the country’s most holy places. The town of Puri actually grew around the grand temple & it witnesses thousands of devotees every day. People from all over the world flock to Puri just for a glimpse of Lord Jagannath. The number of devotees increases tenfold during the Lord’s grand Rath Yatra (Car Festival) held during the month of July. The origin of the deity is shrouded in mystery & many stories & fables exist around the deity & the temple.

Puri tourism also relies upon its beautiful beaches as a major tourist attraction. The long & beautiful sea beach of Puri is considered to be the safest in the country for swimming.

There are also many other places in & around Puri that you can visit like the world famous Sun Temple at Konark. The temple is an UNESCO World Heritage site & is full of beautiful sculptures made on stone. The temple itself is in the shape of a chariot- the chariot of the sun god. The chariot is pulled by seven beautifully sculpted horses & has 24 wheels. Every part of the temple has a story to tell that’s why it is named as a “poem in stone”. Konark also has its own beach- the Chandrabhaga beach where you can observe the beautiful sunsets. But bathing here can be risky as the current is strong here. You can visit the huge Chilika Lake which is also nearby. This huge lake is a sort backwater as it is connected to the sea. The lake is a winter destination for thousands of migratory birds who come here to escape from the frigid cold of their home. There are also places like Baliharachandi, Sakhigopal, Pir jahaniya, etc. you can travel to the twin cities of Cuttack & Bhubaneswar.
