    Im planning a trip to Puri this year, though not sure whether to go in September or early winter...anyway, I was wondering how far Puri is from the Sun Temple in Konark? is it a feasible day trip?

    Sun Temple in Konark is just 15 miles south of Puri so, you can easily reach it from Puri on a taxi or organized tour if you prefer to go that route.

    Regarding when to visit Konark you can visit any time of the year, though when I visited in December I enjoyed it best. During December, Konark hosts the Dance Festival where they showcase all types of traditional Indian dances like Bharatnatyam and Odissi. I'd personally suggest visiting in December as you'll have a great time there.
