Puri Holiday Packages

Puri is one of the rare & unique places in India that provide equal opportunity for tourism as well as pilgrimage. A tailor-made Puri holiday package must include checking out some of the famous tourist attractions in Puri, a relaxing and memorable stay in one of the best hotels in Puri, and dining in some popular restaurants in Puri. To make your stay in Puri truly memorable, don’t hesitate to indulge in these following activities:

See the world-famous Rath Yatra:

Held annually at Puri on Ashadha Shukla Dwitiya, Ratha Yatra is a Hindu festival related to the God Jagannath. The festival attracts people from all over the world regardless of their religion or any specific spiritual belief they have. The crowds here can get out of control, so keep safe & be cautious of how you navigate here.

Check out the Swargadwar beach for some beach fun:

Running along the main Marine Drive of Puri, the Swargadwar beach remains packed with tourists all through the year. In the morning you can enjoy your time by splashing & bathing at the safe, sandy beach, whereas the evenings can be enjoyed witnessing the beautiful oceanic views and exploring stalls selling local handmade products, seashells, and jewelry. 

Visit Raghurajpur village if you’re in love with heritage crafts:

Located near Puri, Raghurajpur village is well-known for Pattachitra paintings, as well as other art forms such as wood & stone carvings, palm leaf engraving, papier mache, and Gotipua folk dance. The village is also the only place where the traditional decoration for God Jagannath’s throne called Patas is made. Your Puri trip package must include a visit to this art-enriched village. 

Make a trip to Chilika – the largest internal saltwater lake in Asia:

For bird watchers & nature lovers, Chilika Lake is a must-visit. Located fifty kilometers away from Puri, this pear-shaped lake is dotted with a few small islands and has fisheries and salt pans around its shore. The lake also houses the most accommodating ecosystems around the globe, which entails an extensive range of flora & fauna that can be witnessed here.
