Safety Measures:
While your visit in Puri, it is always recommeneded to be safe. Do not indulge in junk sea food that is available in the food stalls near the beaches as those are not hygenic and may cause trouble to the health. Puri doesn't have good hospitals and it is always recommended to the tourists to carry important medicines with them. The temples around Puri are full of touts that take money from tourists in the name of offerings for god so also be careful from them. A journey should be a memorable and enjoyable one but while having all the fun, be safe and maintain safety too.
