Puri situated on the eastern sea-bed of India, is the only most popular sea-side resort where the beauty of the sky in radiant colours, the roaring waves and the golden beach can be experienced. The long sandy beach draws large numbers of western travellers and Indians. According to Hindu belief, there are five great holy spots(Pancha Tirthas) at Puri out of which sea is the greatest and holiest for tourists and travellers.
I came to Puri and went on a tour for Sun Temple KONARK and then went to this hotel to have lunch. Service-Good, Ambience - Good, Food - Good, Price - Reasonable, Cleanliness - Great.
An important suggestion: If you take one thali(dish/plate) food, it is enough for two persons. Think and order.
Puri offers the tourist the rare opportunity of witnessing the colourful Sun rise and Sun set. Puri sea beach is the right place to spend and enjoy morning and evening. Thousands of people from different part of India and world spend their morning and evening at Puri sea beach each and everyday. Sea shells are collected here in large quantity. These are the main wealth of Puri sea beach.
It is highlight witnessing the dawn over the sea and fishing boats.The crude construction of the boats is unusual. They are made of solid tree trunks and are enormously heavy. Buoyancy is achieved purely from the buck of wood. They are made in two or three pieces, split longitudinally and bound together, when not in use they are untied and the pieces laid out on the beach to dry.
Being an Odia, I feel blessed to have a visit to this historical monuments and above all after knowing the story behind it. The cravings on the stone tells us about our day to day life stories... They are very finely done.A must visit place for every one....
