With this portion I shall like to conclude my short trip report. This time I stayed at Puri for two days. It is a place which I am sure most of you have visited at least once. The fist day I was tired and did not come out of my hotel at all. On the second and my last day at Puri it was very hot outside and I was forced to stay at my hotel the afternoon hours. I came out only at the evening to visit Konark and the Puri temple.
I knew that the Konark temple was open to visit till 8 PM. Lights of the day was already fading when I reached Chadrabhaga beach.
The temple at Konark was magnificent. And the number of visitors were also even less than usual.
I reached Puri and parked my car at the main car parking place of the main temple. It is located on Bada Danda (literally meaning Grand Street in Oriya). Here is some picture of the road and the temple from outside.
The very next day I left Puri at eight and reached Calcutta by five in the afternoon (with breaks for breakfast, lunch, tea, etc). But I do not wish to elaborate on that and end my describing my journey here.
Thanks for reading,
