Perfect for a family trip, the place is religious and relaxing as well

Puri or Jagannath Puri is one of the Char Dham of India. The famous Jagannath Temple of the 12th century still stands magnificent and elegant on the eastern coast of India in this small town, Puri . . There are no specific visit timings for the temple. But the doors of Garbhagriha (the chamber where the three deities are enshrined) remains closed when God is offered with Prasad. Plan a holy visit to the temple at 5:30 AM to witness the morning rituals performed . Only auto-rickshaws are allowed near the temple gates. So if travelling by car, park in the parking space and hire an auto-rickshaw or walk down to the temple. Beware of the Pandas (local term for the holy priests, responsible for performing temple rituals). They are pure businessmen, ready to suck. The best case will be if you have any contacts for a Panda else take help at the hotel where you are staying. The Pandas can be avoided if the purpose is for God's darshan only. A visit nearest to the idols will need a ticket . Every day a different flag waves on the Nila Chakra (Blue Discus) mounted on the top Shikhar of the temple. It is marvelous to watch men carrying flags and climbing to the Shikhar to change the flag . There are many hotels or resorts in all price range. The check-in and check-out time for all hotels are 7:00 AM, in the morning . The sea at Puri is comparatively violent and dangerous on Full-moon and No-Moon. The best time to visit will be winters. Rath Yatra is the most renowned festival when Lord Jagannath along with his brother Balabhadra and sister Subhadra board the chariot to visit the Gudicha temple. Lakhs of devotees visit Puri on this day to seek Gods' blessing.

Peaceful place

The sea of Puri is awesome. Its a religious place, peaceful. All the temples have a historical value too. It's a great place to stay for few days with family. Not so costly place. Lots of hotels, you can easily find your best option. But it's better to book a hotel online.

Clean room, good staff

The rooms of Hotel Seascape was Clean. The behaviour of onsite staff as well as owner was good . Enjoyed a lot . Only there was problem with the nearby people. The stare at you like they hadn't seen human being in their life . Better to use Hotel Naren Palace street instead of Hotel Sapphire way.

The trip was good

Good destination to spend holiday in winter season and also a pilgrimage destination. The hotel is far away from Golden Sea Beach and also from the temple. If staying arrangements are good, the enjoyments just doubles. Thanks.

Jay jagannath

Its new experience every-time I visit Puri. I have been to Puri at least 20 times but each time has something special for you. The sea view is too good. The beach has its own beauty. My special attraction is to see the beautiful sunrise across the entire sea. It's a karismatic feeling all together.

Wastage of money

Everything is bit expensive compare to quality. People are dirty, spit here and there. Roads are full of gutkha stains. Temples are business institutions. South Indian coasts are far better than Puri. Puri known as cheap holiday destination but it's no more. Absolutely no comparison stands with Goa, Kovalam, Chennai etc.

Puri last of four dham but one of the best

Puri is well known for its jagannath temple. It is one of the four Dhams of hinduism and a must visit place. I travelled with parents and grandfather and completed our four dham yatra. The best places to visit are:

Jagannath Temple-Best time is 3pm, You will be able to see flag hosting, but beware of pandas, they are too much, photography inside is not allowed.

Sun temple Konark- Take a guide, it is a UNESCO site a lot to learn here about hinduism. It is one of the best temple of India.

It is best to stay at Puri near beach. There are many more temples on can visit. Apart from these famous places chilka lake, dolphin safari and nandan kanan national park and wildlife sanctuary are other places to visit. One more temple is lingraj which is very famous, One can also visit udaygiri.
