@Trisha

I somehow missed your TR so long. It's wonderful, really! You had opened quite a few hitherto unknown or little-known windows of Golden Triangle. The accompanying pics are also beautiful and had captured the mood very well. Thoroughly enjoyed. By the way, which Holiday Home you stayed in Puri? A small Review and couple of pics (if available) would be nice. Thanks.

Thank you Ashishda for your kind comments. Your and other's TRs have been an inspiration always. I remembered your TR when I was at Puri beach (could almost envision your yummy beach eateries photos ) and also your comments on the trick photography at Konark .

The holiday home we stayed in was Shanti Nivas I. This was at Swarga-dwar (Renuka Road) just behind the Hotel Sonali. The holiday home is about 2-3 mins walk from the beach and one cannot see the beach from there, view blocked by other buildings (Sorry, but I dont hav any pics of the place). Cooking facility is available upon request. Rooms were double bed (Non-AC) with clean bathroom, veranda, a small cooking space and TV (which was very important as we were there at the time of the world cup :P). Overall it was a homely atmosphere (charge was Rs. 500 per day per room). The only negative part, apart from the distance from the sea, is the narrow galli which has a open garbage vat right at its entry point. If one craves for Bengali food, then the Dada-boudir Hotel is just adjacent to this holiday home which serves good quality and quantity of both veg and non-veg food.

Some more Puri photos

Narendra Sarovar, where Lord Madanmohan(in lieu of Lord Jagannath) takes a boat ride along with his cousins, the pandavas


The temple on the Narendra Sarovar (said to be Lord Jagannath's aunts house -pisir bari)


Photography is not allowed inside the temple, bu we managed to glean this pic of the artistic temple interiors


The Gundicha temple, destination point of the ratha yatra, was being painted and cleaned profusely in preparation of the Rath yatra day..

Yes, they are easily identified by their characteristic head gear. I think they are also known as Nulia.
