June and July are a bit packed because of the Rath Yatra (Chariot festival) that is held every year, so religious visitors can visit in winters to get a hassle-free holy visit of Lord Jagannath.
Pattachitra paintings of Raghurajpur Artist Village, Chilika Wildlife Sanctuary with seasonal migratory birds such as Flamingo, Spot Billed Pelican, Konark Marine Drive and Satapada (Dolphin sanctuary) are top attractions to enjoy Puri. And yes, a boat ride in Chilika Lake for first timers is a must! Baked cottage cheese (chena) and Bengali sweets are some local food here you find will mouth-watering.
