During the festival there are plenty of activities to be done, places to be visited and stuff to be bought. If you are looking for a wholesome and hassle-free experience, there are plenty of tour packages being offered by leading travel agencies throughout India. However, if you are the independent, adventurous and experimenting kind then take my advice and hire a bike or a cycle once you get to Puri and start discovering. Religious festival or not, no trip to Puri should begin without a visit to the world famous Jagannath Temple. Being one of the four Dhaams, it is one of the four most sacred temples in India. It is sad but the entry is strictly restricted to Hindus only. However, there are hundreds of temples in and around Puri where it is not so. A couple of other famous temples that are definitely worth a visit are Shree Lokanath Temple and Sun Temple at Konark.
