The city of Puri is prominently for the Jagannath temple and its famous Ratha Yatra that is held every year. The existing form of the temple is a result of long-winding work that started in the 10th century.
It is one of the Char Dham pilgrimage sites and holds a very special place among the Hindus, especially for people following Vaishnava tradition. Many famous religious personalities such as Adi Shankaracharya have been associated with this temple.
Today, it attracts thousands of tourists and pilgrims across the globe. One unique fact that Jagannath temple is truly special is that the idols of deities are not permanently placed there. They are ceremoniously replaced every twelve or 19 years with an identical replica.
Besides the Jagannath temple and yatra, there are some other attractions in Puri. There are numerous temples to visit and if you want, you can spend a pleasant evening on the beach too.
