Getting There : A one and half hour drive from the capital of Orissa - Bhubaneswar, the World Heritage Site is extremely well connected to all major cities in India.
I stayed at : Yatrinivas,Konark
Best Time to Visit - November to February
Ideal Itinerary : Drive all the way from Bhubaneswar to Konark and check in the hotel. Visit the temple at night when the monument is at its utmost glory.Next day, watch the picturesque sunrise at Chandrabhaga beach and make one more trip to the temple in the daylight (trust me it will be worth it to visit it twice). Then take the amazing Marine Drive to Puri. This is a 35 km stretch of road to Puri. Though the entire road is nothing short of dream drive, the first 5 kms is memorable with the amazing beach flanked by casuarina trees on one side and a thick vegetation (which is also a reserve forest) on the other
