Rath Yatra marks the nine-day sojourn of Lord Jagannath and his siblings on the Gundichha Temple. The pageant is native to the state of Odisha. It is well known with pomp and pleasure throughout the globe.
Every 12 months, three chariots are constructed for the occasion for Lord Jagannath, Devi Subhadra and Lord Balabhadra. Lakhs of devotees pull these chariots because the deities march in the direction of the Gundicha Temple. The pageant lasts for a superb 15 days. Devotees think about that touching the rope of Lord Jagannath’s chariot will cleanse their sins and free them from the cycle of rebirth, as believed within the Hindu faith.
This 12 months, President Ram Nath Kovind, Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Odisha Governor Ganeshi Lal, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik and plenty of different dignitaries greeted the folks on the event.
