Puri is dominated by two forces.
The first refers to the strength the city won from embracing the Bay of Bengal, while the other is the holy grounds of the Jagannath Temple. This is how Puri became known as a beach-resort style town yet serves as a draw for many who go there for its Hindu ''Dhams'' – religious places.

Puri is attractive for pilgrims for its most important Hindu pilgrimage site - The Jagannath Temple. This place is more than holy, but a unique example of the Kalinga style in architecture. It dates back to the 12th century and owes its origins to Ganga King Chodaganga Deva, so today millions of pilgrims flock the city for worshiping. Along with them legions of tourists pack the city making it grow strained, but the contrast of views is not a tension for Puri, rather, it is a lifestyle.
Do you know another city to turn what it lacks into benefits? Puri is a place to start the day from the beautiful sunrise, go on sunbathing at the white-sand beaches and superb resorts, but finish at the ''chardham'' or holy site.
Other attractions include;
Golden Beach of Puri, a beautiful umbrella-peppered beach to indulge in sun and sand
Sunara Gaurang Temple, unique in architecture and serves as a pilgrimage spot
Shree Lokanath Temple, a historic place where Lord Shiva hid himself from Shani
Balihar Chandi Temple offers stunning vistas to the nearby calm beach
Puri Konark Marine Drive, this is the most spectacular place in the area offering deserted beaches along the way and many rivers falling into the sea
Grounded in the Austro-Asiatic origins, Puri served as a mere provincial outpost at the crossroads from eastern India to the South. Its first religious associations Puri won with Sankaracharya, a Hindu reformer who made Hinduism the usual practice within the city. By the 12th century Puri won the global recognition with the Purusottama Temple later known as the Jagannath Temple established in the area. At the turn of the 16th century Puri was captured by the Afghans who left the Jagannath Temple in ruins and recovery came only with the change of rule to the Marathas.
Today Puri is a symbol of both Hindu beliefs and Indian state of mind. Yet Puri is immersed in its history, the city has much to do with its present. Upcoming in terms of business, Puri specializes in industries like rice milling, handicrafts and fish curing.
With its businesses and historical temples Puri is a great draw for any travel type. If you are one of those many people who are enthusiastic about Puri, Booked.net can make your stay there an easier experience.
