Group Tour in Puri
One of the four celebrated religious centers of India, Puri, the abode of Lord Jagannath needs nointroduction. According to tradition Puri was once a thickly wooded hill inhabited by the Sabaras (Pre-Aryan and Pre-Dravidian tribes of the Austric linguistic family).
The sunny beach at Puri is one of the finest in the world. Watching the sunrise in a symphony of colours is a wonderful experience. It is one of the most popular sea-side resorts where visitors from any part of the globe can comfortably relax.
Recognition of the Rath Yatra at a global level, acceptance of Odissi as a classical dance form, Orissan School of architecture referred to as poetry frozen in stone and ‘the Mahaprasad brotherhood’ have no doubt helped a lot to fetch Puri, the status of an internationally known city.
