Heavens gate

It has bemused me, Swargdwar means gates of heaven but there seems to be a mythical thought behind it. There is a cemetry, where the dead are lit on funerals, it is for this reason the name of the place is derived. But apart from these mythical explanation there is no such strong reason for this name. Anyway, those who believe in it book their rides to heaven from here. Thats all about this place called Swargdwar.

Overcrowded beach with unhygienic atmosphere

Since this is the oldest beach therefore, all people often come to this beach only. There are many hotels and restaurants located near this beach I suggest neither you stay nor eat here.The reason being that there is a crematorium located very close to this beach. The ashes of the dead bodies being burnt there are continuously flying in the air which makes the atmosphere very dull and unhygienic.

On the way to beach

Its a cremation ground for the Hindu's. This place is just on the road by the beach where all the cremation takes place. The otherwise unhygienic place, you will come across it anyway. Try avoid eating foods from the corners near to Swargadwara which is indeed unhealthy.

Place where life meets death and vice versa

Situated near the beach of Puri this is a Hindu Cremation ground where the death meets life and travels to heaven if cremated here as per local belief. Here there is no touchable and untouchable rule every one is same here and people believe if the mortal body is cremated here the person soul will direct go to heaven as the name suggest. I felt very relaxed after seeing this for the first time.

Way to swarg

It is believed to have the direct connection to the swarg and people believe that if you come here after death you will go to the swarg. Nice place but many don't like due to the burning bodies. No cleaning.

Gloomy atmosphere

The visit was an aesthetic one. Though a crematorium, the moment you are there, you will be able to find a hint of life around everything. The surrounding atmosphere and the gloomy center makes it a place to visit for the tourists. Dont try to carry much things to this place. Just be there and have glimpse of the meeting point of life and afterlife.

A wonderful destination for shopping

If you want to do some shopping in Puri, this is the place. You will get all sorts of handloom products here at a reasonable rate. Do some bargaining if needed.
