Paluru to Chilka mouth (Orissa-NE India)

Characteristics

Description

A low beach of sand hills extends 32 miles NE from Paluru Bluff to Chilka Mouth, the entrance of Chilka Lake. There are few landmarks found along this part of the coast.

Mita Kua Bungalow, a small white house on a sand hill close to the coast about 20 miles ENE of Paluru Bluff, is the most conspicuous.

A beacon lies on the coast about 13 miles ENE of the above bluff. Sandari Beacon lies about 5 miles ENE of Mita Kua Bungalow. Babeswal Temple, painted black, lies about 2.3 miles NE of Sandari Beacon and is sometimes visible among the trees.

Chilka Lake, large shallow expanse of water, is separated from the sea by a long, narrow sandy ridge. Only boats can be accommodated.

The coast between Chilka Mouth and Puri continues low and sandy.
