Could anyone tell me the best way to get to Taratarini (Ganjam) from Bhubaneswar airport?
I am reaching there on a Saturday morning 9.45 am, and am hoping to visit the Taratarini temple on this day and be back in Bhubaneswar for the night.
Appreciate any help I could get!

Thanks!

If your plan to go to Taratarini temple and to come back to Bhubaneswar same day, then your only option is hiring an exclusive car from the Airport and directly proceed to Taratarini. I think you would reach there within 3-4 hours. On your way back have lunch at OTDC Rambha Lodge and come back to Bhubaneswar. It is doable, but it would be very hectic.

In NH-5 Bhubaneswar to Taratarini temple (Ganjam) distance maximum to maximum 160 to 170 and it has taken 3 hours by road. You spend 3 to 4 hour in that destination, and then return back at Bhuaneswar.

Thanks Ashish, Is there no bus service to Ganjam? Given that its a 3-4 hour journey only?

There are frequent buses (both private & OSRTC) from Baramunda (Bus Terminal in Bhubaneswar) going towards Berhampur. It would take about 5 hrs or so depending on traffic, perhaps more in ordinary buses. Don't expect luxury volvo buses on this route yet...

Taxi fare, Bhubaneswar to Taratarini

Does anyone have any idea about the approx taxi fare from bhubaneswar to taratarini and back (round trip in a day)?
Would there be any prepaid arrangements possible from the airport? Are there any counters for long distance bookings like this?

Coolcab operated the pre-paid taxi counter at airport. I don't think Taratarini would fall under the pre-paid rate card. But I'm sure you can avail their hourly package service & meet your needs. If you are arriving at a rush season, it might make sense to call them up & confirm the booking to avoid any surprises.
