A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.

Puri is Puri; For a Bengali, even Miami cannot come close to it, well at least emotionally.

Excellent snaps!!!

I have seen the Sri Jagannath figures carved out on the beach, but have never seen the Santa.

Evergreen PURI – Land of Lord Jagannath

In July 2013, we chalked out a plan for a trip to “Amarkantak” and accordingly tried to book the train tickets through IRCTC website. But, despite of having seats available, we couldn’t get confirmed lower berth tickets for my parents trying for several times. Hence, we decided for a trip to “PURI”, the first and commonest destination of Bengalies.

It is rightly said that one goes to Puri only when Lord Jagannath wishes or to be more precise, calls one. According to the belief, if he does call, you will get all bookings right from train booking to accommodation and each and everything without any problem and – if he does not, you will not be able to go there even if you prepare well in advance.

It has been the land of temples and divinity and the prime pilgrimage because of the world famous Lord Jagannath Temple. It is a home to Bhagwan Jagannath. There are also a good number of other temples in Puri that are visited by people to pay homage to their gods and goddesses.

Our Tour itinerary was:

Day 1 (30.09.2013) : Boarded 22201 Sealdah-Puri Duronto Express, departed at 08.00 p.m. Overnight journey in the train.

Day 2 (01.10.2013) : Reached Puri at 04.15 a.m. Checked-in the holiday home. Fun and bath in and around sea beach. In the evening, went to Lord Jagannath Temple for Darshan and watching flag hosting ceremony of the temple.

Day 3 (02.10.2013) : Tour to “Raghurajpur” by auto. Enjoyed sunset, glanced at the “Samudra Aarti” and did some marketing in the sea beach.

Day 4 (03.10.2013) : “Temple Tour” in Puri by auto. Enjoyed sunset. Checked out the holiday home. Boarded 22202 Puri-Sealdah Duronto Express, departed at 08.10 p.m (late by 25 mins).

Day 5 (04.10.2013) : Reached Sealdah at 04.05 a.m. and could hear the song of “Mahalaya” all around.

Detailed tour report will continue shortly…….

Tour Report : Day 1 (30.09.2013)

We reached Sealdah station from our home at 06.45 p.m to catch our train 22201 Sealdah-Puri Duronto Express. The empty rake from the carshed entered Platform No. 9C, a newly added platform in the Sealdah North Section. The number of passenger for the train was quite less compared to its seat capacity. The pantry staff was seen busy putting the stuff in the pantry car which was to be served during our journey. The weather was fine with cool breeze blowing. We were in the third compartment from the engine and hence could hear the horn from the engine when it departed at 08.00 p.m.

The train gained its speed as it gradually passed by Ultadanga, Dum Dum Jn, passed Dakshineswar and entered the South Eastern Railway Section through Andul. The pantry staff served mineral water of brand ‘Rail Neer’. Only 70% of the seats are full. At 08.30 p.m, the dinner was served consisting of rice, dal, rooti, egg curry, sweet, pickles.

After having our dinner, we occupied our berths for sleep.
