The spirituality though, overwhelms the beaches, as a crowd puller as the city is also known as Jagannath Puri, for the presence of the famous temple of Lord Jagannath.

It is one of the oldest cities in India, especially in the eastern coast and the history dates back well before the birth of Christ. It is during the 7th century AD, the city had become important gateway to the south of India. Due to the visit of Sankaracharya, one of the greatest Hindu reformers, Puri was in its path to become one of the major spiritual places, eventually also became one of the four major places for vaishnabism.
