PURI
The Abode of Lord Jagannath

Puri is situated on the shore of Bay of Bengal, in one of the coastal districts of Orissa. It is the religious metropolis of the State of Orissa, teeming with a population of three lakhs, and covers an area of 10.159Km. The name seems to be of modem origin, abbreviated for Purushothama Kshetra of the past, in all probability.

It is a Railway terminus on the South Eastern Railways and is connected with every place of historic and religious importance of the state. As it forms the apex of the golden triangle of Puri, Konark and Bhuvaneswar, the most worth-seeing holy places of Orissa, both private and State Bus Services are available in plenty. Tourist vehicles of all types serve the needs of the pilgrims and tourists at all hours from any point of alighting to any point of destination. It is 60Km. off Bhuvaneswar, the present state capital. Its air port is connected with the rest of the principal airports of India by boeing flights.
