So, now that you have decided to come to the land of Jagannath Puri,the question that must be troubling you is how can you get yourself there, right? Well, not to worry anymore about that because the means of transportation to the city is rather feasible. Lets discuss about the available options below:

  • By Air

    The nearest airport to the city is the Biju Patnaik Airport at Bhubaneswar that is 56 km away from the city. From here you can hire cabs for around INR 900. Biju Patnaik airport is connected to Delhi and Mumbai and if you happen to come from outside the country, you will have to change flights at Delhi or Kolkata international airports.

  • By Rail
    Puri is at the end of the East Coast Railway and it has direct train links with major cities like New Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Okha, Ahmedabad, Tirupati etc.Few of the significant trains are Kolkata (Howrah) Puri Howrah Express, Jagannath Express; New Delhi; Purushottam Express. Reaching Puri is not at all a hassle by train, in fact it is well connected from all the metro cities and rather a cheaper and convenient option.

  • By Bus
    Puri is connected to many cities in Orissa through Orissa road transport corporation buses. Bus services are available from Bhubaneshwar (56 km), Cuttack (32 km) and Konark. The bus stand near Gundicha Temple is connected to Bhubaneswar and Cuttack and you can find a bus in every 10 to 15 minutes. So, to reach Puri by bus first you will have to reach Bhubaneswar, from where you can get buses easily for Puri or you can take taxi from Bhubaneswar to Puri.

Pick your favourite option rationally and have a happy journey..
