Puri

I went with some trepidation, fearing a hippie drop out town, Westerners in flowing orange robes, dope being smoked everywhere. Lots of Namaste! being shouted at me. But it's actually a great town. The temple area is great. The Jagannath temple is . . . enormous. and you can climb roofs on either side of it, for 100rs, to photograph over the wall. But just wandering around the city was a great day. And the fishing village next to the backpacker district was fun too. Spent three full days here, one at Konark, and could have spent another.
Wall decoration. It looked like a temple wall, but behind it were mobile towers
