I came down to Odisha for a friend’s wedding. I had already thought of keeping a day to travel and explore Puri. I booked a taxi early morning at 6 am from Bhubaneshwar. Puri is about 60 kms away from Bubaneshwar. It was wonderful to go on a long drive to Puri with fog all around and experiencing the sun rise.

I reached the Jagannath Temple in an hour. From the car parking area, a bus takes the people to the temple for a fare of Rs 10. The Jagannath Temple is a sacred pilgrimage dedicated to Lord Krishna. The important ritual that devotees do there is to light a diya.

Outside the temple; I bought prasad for my family and relatives. As I walked outside the temple, it was still 8 am i thought to have tea at a shop. Walking further; I found a sweet shop and bought the famous sweet of Puri called, “Chena Khai”.

From there; we drove to the “Puri-Sea Beach” which is 3 kms away from Puri. As I reached there; I was in awe of the beach. For few minutes; I only gazed at the waves. Whenever I get time to sneek out for solo travels; I seek to be in the mountains or waters. I'm glad this time; I was with the waters :)

Just pausing for few hours at the beach, letting the high speed waves get into the body and simply gazing and hearing the sounds of the waves has been beautiful…
