    Have a look at the extensive advice that our member Goutammitra has on his Puri page:

    "KONARK,THE SUN TEMPLE." - Puri by goutammitra

    I am sure that you could also email Goutam- he is very obliging and would have the best advice.

    Thanks Lynne, I am here already. You dont' need to go to Khurda Road from Bhubaneshwar. It's a big station and offers lots of facilities. Puri is only 60Kms from Bhubaneshwar by road. Just take a taxi or the numerous buses outside the station and you will be there in 1.5hrs. You may also go by taxi or Toyota Qualis taxi parked outside the station. But do not try to start at 3.30 AM , as you will be insisted by the touts or the taxi fellows. Please start at dawn or around 5.30AM, remain safe. Though Orissa is very safe and has very good road compared to other parts of India, but no one can stop you from having a cup of coffee!

    You can also travel to Puri by train from Bhubaneshwar, there are many trains in the morning like Howrah Puri Exp, Jagganath Exp, Neelachal Exp and so on, time two hours. Suggest to travel by road.
