Orissa Beaches

Puri Beach in OrissaOrissa is so mobbed with religious adherents that at times the romance of its enamoring coastline seems to get overshadowed. This year, let the sea sweep you off your feet and transport you to a different world altogether. The beaches are hypnotizing and those who are still adamant about the religious fervor attached to it, have abundant options in over thousand temples strewn across the place. The beaches are bathed in sanctity and with them, their guests - the feeling is too redundant to miss out!

Beatific Beaches
Orissa's 482 km of exotic coastline has some of the most enthralling beaches in the world. The roaring waves stirred by the invigorating breeze, water sports enthusiasts intervening this fusion relentlessly, children frolicking about looking for sea-shells, sadhus taking a holy dip chanting aloud, the rare Olive Ridley Turtles' eggs at some unexplored nook - the beaches at Orissa can only be termed stupendous.

Gopalpur On Sea - Perched close to the Bay of Bengal, 18 kms southeast of Berhampur, is the town of Gopalpur laced with an exotic beach popular for surfing, swimming and sun-basking. Northwest of Gopalpur lies Taptapani, famous for its hot water sulphur spring known to cure skin ailments.

Puri Beach - Famous for its golden sands and the majestic antics of the sun about the sea - sunset and sunrise. Pilgrims visiting the Jagannath Temple here, throng the beaches during festivals.

Balasore - 214 km northeast of Bhubaneswar, Balasore is convenient base point for excursions to Chandikpur and Remuna. Also noted for its traditional handicrafts of lacquered toys, brass-works and stone carvings.

Chandipur BeachChandipur - 16 km east of Balasore, is Chandipur, another pristine beach. Here the sea, recedes five kilometres at low tide and then flows rhythmically after a regular interval every day. This play of the tide combined with bracing environs make it a wonderful vacationing jaunt.

What else to check out in Orissa
Bhubaneshwar's 500 glorious temples - the Lingaraja Temple, Mukteswara Temple, Raja Rani Temple, the Parasurameswara Temple and the Savaranjaleswara Temple - to name a few are major tourist attractions. At the Nandankanan Wildlife Sanctuary you can enjoy the lion safari. Also pick some silver filigree (Tarakasi), stone and woodcarving, Patta paintings and silk fabrics before you leave.

Located 60 km from Bhubaneswar is the Hindu pilgrimmage centre Puri or Sri Purushottama Dham, with the famed Jagannath Temple. Enjoy a day at the Chilika Lake here, watching the aquatic beauty and the dolphins. Gundicha Ghar, Temple of Child Krishna at Indradyumna Tank and so on are its other attractions.

About 35 km from Puri is Konark's colossal Sun Temple or the Black Pagoda - built like a blazing chariot on 12 pairs of giant wheels and with abundance of Kama Sutra sclupting on the walls, is a must-visit.
