Dear Ashis,

I am planning to visit Puri along with my mother and grandmother. Your inputs on the following queries will be much appreciated

1. Anything specific to weather that i should be aware of?

2. I am planning to stay at either Victoria club or holiday resort. Is some kind of negotiation possible with these hotels for 2 night stay?

3. I plan to reach on any of the Friday afternoon and stay till sunday morning in Puri. I plan to visit the jagannath temple atleast. What other attractions could i plan to see/visit without making it too hectic?

Thanks!

1. Avoid May - June for excessive hot weather.

2. They don't negotiate on tariff.

3. Konark and Bhubaneswar can be done within the time frame.

The itinerary is perfect. Skip Chilika, enjoy the beach instead, its worthwhile.

Take taxi for drop off at Puri only. I would suggest to ask the hotel (if you have selected any) to do this pick-up and drop service. Hiring cab for the entire trip will not be feasible.

Get a bus from Belur which goes to Dharamtala (Esplanade). And get Tollygunge bound Metro from Esplanade Station. Deboard at Kalighat Station. The Kali Temple is walking distance from there.

Get any bus or minibus from Salt Lake (Karunamoyee) which goes to Theater Road / Bus stop - Birla Planatarium. Victoria is walking distance from the bus stop.

Unfortunately, the Tram services of Kolkata has been stopped in most of the routes. You can avail tram Near Gariahat at South Kolkata and Dalhousie Square and Dharamtala in Central Kolkata.

Thanks Ashish,

could you please confirm my following understanding..

Hotel holiday resort is a good place to stay in medium budget option, it is on the beach and commute to Shri Jagannath temple is simple/available (considering that my group primarily consists of senior citizens).
