And we started from Bhubaneswar to cover up the golden triangle of Bhubaneswar - Konark - Puri and also went on an extension to Chilika (Satapada) :)
Lets start with the Bhabya Sun Temple at Konark

....And then we took the Konark - Puri Marine Drive and drove past Puri, to Satapada.
The road is amazing with scenic beauty all around :)

...And we reached Satapada, one of the faces of Chilika :)
This was the pathway on the lake leading to the watch tower giving a panaromic view of the lake!!
