Overall Guide : The overall experience at Puri is satisfying. Although the Grand Road leading to the main temple of the town is crowded one can never fail to view the towering Jagannath Temple. The temple on its own is the most dominant... more attraction to visitors. As one approaches the temple complex, shops, hotels, and restaurants line both sides of the Grand road. There is a profusion of handicrafts available in shops and extended shops near the road. The Puri beach is another great attraction, where the coast line is dotted with garment shops, handicraft shops, and vending food items. On the white sandy beach handicrafts are sold at bargain prices. The beach is always full of visitors as they view the seamless sea of blue water and the waves crashing into the shores touching the joyous feet of the sea bathers.

Overall Guide : Puri.."WAS"..a beautiful place. Everybody tell about the beach and the Jagarnath temple. But Puri was not "only" this: what was good was the old town full of beautiful houses, mansions, ashrams and the small lane full of life, the banyans... more trees, the marvelous paintings of Matta Matha Mandir, the peace of Swetaganga tank, the secret Jambeshwar mandir and the old houses around....
Not to be missed lord jagannath temple , the old city , Bali shai

Overall Guide : One should reserve trains and hotels from before since Puri is such an attractive place that tourists visit the place throughout the year! The visit to the Temple should be arranged earlier so that it would not become an inconvenience. A hotel... more near the beach is the best option to enjoy oneself while in Puri...!! Enjoy the stay and the memories would be forever!!!
Not to be missed Sea and a swim in the Sea , lord jagannath temple , Shopping in Puri
