Puri sea beach is the best in India. In Mumbai, Goa, Cochin and Chennai as well as other sea beaches, taking bath in sea is a risk due to tides, under current and deepness. But in Puri to take sea bath is a pleasure and enjoyable experience. The beach is very wide and exposed and there's not a scrap of shade to be found.
The sea beach at Puri is approximately 150.4 kilometers long. This town is positioned at such a unique place that both the sunset and the sunrise can be viewed from the sea beach itself.
One of the most important festivals known as 'Ratha Yatra' is held at Puri with great pomp and gaiety. Particularly, during this time of the year, this town in Orissa is practically flooded by pilgrims.
Majority of the roads from various parts of the Orissa and other states are connected to Puri. Many super fast trains also ply to Puri from cities like Kolkata, Delhi etc.
The culture of Puri reflects the ethos of Orissa society. The temple town of Orissa is renowned throughout the world for the Jagannath Temple. The Puri culture is based on Jagannath cult that was shaped by the mingling of various other Indian cults with Vaishnavism.
Konark is also known as Konaditya. The name Konark is derived form the words Kona - Corner and Arka - Sun; it is situated on the north eastern corner of Puri or the Chakrakshetra. Konark is also known as Arkakshetra.
