Ratha-yatra in Jagannatha Puri

Date: 
Sun, 2017-06-25


The annual Ratha-yatra, chariot festival, held in Puri, Orissa, India, is one of the largest festivals in India, attracting millions of pilgrims each year. Massive Deities of Jagannath, Baladeva and Subhadra (Krishna, appearing in a unique form, along with His Brother and Sister) are pulled on specially constructed, forty-five foot-high chariots through the center of Puri. It is the only opportunity that "non-Hindus" and foreigners (traditionally banned from entering the Jagannath temple) are allowed to see the Deities.
