Hi Sumistha,

Bhubaneswar Panthaniwas is a good option. In bhubaneswar you can include Nandankanan, Khandagiri & Udayagiri caves,Lingaraj Temple, Rajarani Temple, Kedar Gouri temple, Mukteswar Temple.

While going to puri you can go to Dhauli. its on the way to puri and about 12 km from Panthaniwas. Also you can visit pipili on the way to puri, which is famos for its applique works.

Regarding cab, you can easily get one at bhubaneswar. The rate is around Rs 9-10 per km plus halting charges for a/c Innova.

If you need any other info contact me, I am from Bhuabaneswar.

Regards,
Sidhartha

help to all those who wish to visit Puri, Chilka and Konark

Hi, just visited Puri, Chilka and Konark. enjoyed a lot, but could have been better planned. any ways, i will help you out by giving following tips :-

1) At Puri, please take early mornning bath in beach then go to a hotel/Dharamshala take a fresh water bath and then go for darshan without wallets, belts, mobile (they do not allow leather and electronic items in temple).

2) The temple darshan is not organised properly by the authorities. It is very crowded, stay at your left in queue for better view of Jaggannathji. Take care of elders and infants to avoide crowd pushing.Do not give any Dakshina to any of the pandits at temple, they are virtual robbers and imposters.... please donate money to temple trust instead and take a Receipt. Using this receipt you will get a box of prasad. The Jute market is really good at Puri (example jute bags, crafts, swings etc)

3) If you want to book an AC Four wheeler to travel between Puri, Konark and Chilka, travel agents wud charge 2200 Rs. But if you directly approach driver, he will charge 1500 rupees only.I used A.C Bolero which is a ten seater and travelled 200Kms in 1500 bucks.

4) Restaurant facility is not good at Puri and Chilka.One of the very good restaurants which has lot of varieties and is cheap is located 6Kms from Puri towards Konark temple road( Puri-Konark Marine Drive Road). The name of restaurant is Rajhans(9437417276). Cafe-Coffee-day is also located next to it.The food is standard and cheap and will suit people from cities like Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi etc.

5) Chilka is very very superb... go for a long boat ride (3Hrs), i watched Dolphins, flying fishes, could see KingFisher and Sea-Gull fishing the fishes. The local fishermen are help full, they will also give you sea shells containing pearls.They will break the shell, remove the oyster ( or the creature) in front of you which contains pearls and may sell it to you.The sea mouth point, Dolphin point, Red-Crab island were great.take a break in sea mouth island to have tea, coconut water, bhelpuri etc. In all Chilka lagoon which is onne of the biggest in Asia (1100 SqKm) was great. It was a life time moment. Do not plan to eat at Chilka, the food quality is bad.

6) Please visit Konark at day time and reserve 2Hrs for visiting the temple.Please take guides help, he will explain lot of historic details.Konark is good for buying Casheu-nuts.

7) In between Puri and Konark, also visit a sanctuary. i missed it. Also the Konark beach is good and clean.

I hope, this information helps,
