Where to stay in Puri

With Puri such a vital place of pilgrimage for Hindus across the world, and tourists keen to witness the festivities and engage with the history of the place, the city offers a good selection of accommodations to suit its varied list of visitors. In the dense collection of streets around the temple, a few guesthouses and hotels provide good access to the main urban points of interest. Down by the coast, you'll find a variety of hotels offering sea views, with budget options usually set a little further back from the golden sands than the upmarket choices.
