Visit Ananda Bazaar

Situated just next to the Grand Road going through the city, the Ananda Bazaar is most popular for the mahaprasad (special offering to the god) that is sold there. This prasad (offering) is a local speciality that devotees offer to Lord Jagannath at his temple.

Visit Sweta Ganga

Sweta Ganga is one of the Pancha Mukti Tirthasthal of Puri and a holy bathing tank located just opposite to Ganga Mata Math. Legend has it that Goddess Ganga resides here so she can visit and serve Lord Jagannath regularly, and that is why many believe that this perennial tank never runs out of water.

Visit Markandeya Tank

The city of Puri is home to five sacred tanks known as the Pancha Tirtha: Indradyumna, Markandeya, Sweta Ganga and Rohini Kunda. It is believed that a pilgrimage to Puri is incomplete unless one bathes in all these five tanks. Markandeya is said to be the place where gods saved sage Markandeya from the sea.

Visit Ratha Yatra

Also known as the Chariot Festival, Ratha yatra is among the most important Hindu Festivals in India. The festival, most elaborately organised in Puri, is held annually during the Hindu calendar month of Asadha, which falls on the second day of the lunar fortnight during June and July. The main deity worshipped during the festival is Lord Jagannath, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu.

Enjoy Puri Beach Festival

Held at Swargadwar Beach every year in November, the Puri Beach Festival is a cultural event. The festival flaunts folk dances, music, local cuisine and offers handicrafts, handlooms and other local arts and crafts.

Visit Chandan Yatra

Also known as the sandalwood voyage, the Chandan Yatra of Lord Jagannath begins on the day of Akshaya Tritiya (an annual spring festival). It is celebrated in several temples across the state. On this day, master carpenters start to make the chariots (rathas) of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Goddess Subhadra.

On the seventh day of the new moon of the Hindu calendar month of Magha, the Magha Saptami is celebrated. The venue of this festival is the Sun Temple, and it celebrates the Sun God at Konark.

Enjoy Turtle Hatching

Some 130 km away from Bhubaneswar, the Gahirmatha Beach is home to Olive Ridley Turtles. This beach is a part of the larger Gahirmatha Marine Wildlife Sanctuary.

Believed to be the world’s most significant nesting ground for Olive Ridley turtles, this beach sees millions of species coming to mate and nest in November each year.

Enjoy India Surf Festival

One of India’s first surfing festivals, this annual surfing festival is organised in Puri in winter. The sea off Puri’s beaches is apt for surfing. The Puri Beach offers challenging waves for surfing. Puri’s still waters provide excellent support for Stand-up Paddle (SUP) surfing, offering what some see as an opportunity for paddle-based tourism.

Enjoy Puri Water Sports

Abundance of beaches with fine sand and white surf, makes Puri a popular destination among water sport adventure junkies. Activities like jet skiing and banana boat rides are available on the beachfront between the lighthouse and the Mangala river.
