The Golden Triangle of Odisha consists of three equally captivating and culturally vibrant destinations which are all unique in their own way: Bhubaneswar, Puri and Konark. A visit to these three destinations takes guests on a breathtaking journey of novel experiences and scenic beauty.
Bhubaneswar is the capital of Odisha and is widely known as “The City of Temples” as it is home to a number of important and fine temples including the Lingaraj Temple, Raja Rani Temple and Mukteswar Temple. These attract throngs of devotees on pilgrimages every year. Bhubaneswar is also home to tourist attractions like Udaygiri and Khandagiri caves, Odisha State Museum and Nandan Kanan Zoological Park.
Puri is a seaside pilgrimage town known all over for being home to the magnificent Jagannath Temple which is a major pilgrimage destination for Hindus and a part of the “Char Dham” pilgrimages. Nearby tourist attractions here include the popular Puri Beach, Chilka Lake, Pipili, Chandrabhaga, and Satapara.
Konark is located just a short scenic drive away from Puri on the stunning Puri-Konark Marine Drive which has several enthralling sights along the way including views of the river and the sea. The glorious Sun Temple of Konark is a famous UNESCO World Heritage site.
