The first day marks your arrival in Puri. After you land at Biju Patnaik International Airport in Bhubaneshwar, take a shuttle to Lotus Eco Beach Resort Konark, one of the finest resorts near Ramchandi Beach. Take a breather and enjoy the ambience of our well-appointed accommodations for some time before setting off to explore Puri. To rest your tired muscles, you can spend a lazy day at the nearby Ramchandi Beach.
After a refreshing breakfast, kickstart the second day of sightseeing by visiting some of the most popular sites in the city. According to our Puri travel guide, Konark Sun Temple should be the first place to visit. It is a great example of Hindu Orissan architecture that attracts pilgrims from across the world. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the 13th-century temple’s sculptural work reflects the phenomenal intricacy behind the craftwork. After seeking blessings at the temple, head out to Chandrabhaga Beach.
After a healthy breakfast at the resort, get ready to celebrate nature! Chilika Lake, a paradise for bird and nature enthusiasts, attracts tourists with its boating facilities. A cruise to Chilika Sea Mouth reveals the mesmerising sight of majestic dolphins. The cruise is a splendid and tranquil experience that marks the perfect end to your trip. Upon arrival, you can visit the famous Allarnath Temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Seek blessings from the deity and head back to the resort.
On the final day, after relishing your breakfast, visit the final and most crucial stop - Konark Museum. It is an archaeological museum that preserves artefacts from the past, which gives us a glimpse of the city and its culture centuries ago. A treasure trove for history lovers, the museum has three galleries that house a number of antiques, including models of reincarnations of Lord Vishnu, celestial nymphs, the Khandolite-built reconstructed wheel, and the iconic picture of Surya carved in sandstone. After exploring the museum, head to the airport to catch your flight back home!
