A Joyful Trip On A Sea-Side Town Puri

Beautiful Sea-Side Town Puri – Orissa

During the last Christmas holidays, I went to Puri, the famous sea-side town puri, with some of my friends. We availed ourselves of the Puri Duronto Express.It takes 7.30 hours to reach puri. We reached Puri early in the morning and went straight to the Hotel New Sea Hawk, on a sea facing room.

The sea has always allured me. So I went to the sea-side as soon as I took my breakfast. Words cannot describe what I saw. The dark blue waves reached out to the far-off horizon and mingled with the sky. They came rolling and got on the shores. Then they rolled slowly back leaving pebbles on the shores. Hours after hours I looked at the sea. At noon I came back to the hotel.

So long as We were at Puri I went every morning to the sea-side. At noon my friends and I bathed in the sea. I fascinated, seeing the excellent sunset from the Golden beach of Puri, this sea beach is famous for all beaches in Puri. After that, we got back to our hotel.

Next day we visited the Jagannath temple. The building is a magnificent one. We saw the wooden images of Jagannath, Balaram and Subhadra. We prayed to them for mercy. On our way back from the temple we had a view of Lakshmi-Narayan Jola, the vast paddy field. The oblations offered to Jagannath daily are made of the rice which grows in this field. We were at Puri for 5 days. The wholesome climate of the place and the regular sea-bath improved our health.

We have already passed 5 days, We came back from Puri. Still, the memory of the vast sea tumbling on the shore flashes across my mind and soaks my heart in heavenly joy.
