Jagannath Puri Rath Yatra is one of the biggest festivals celebrated in the honor of Lord Jagannath as a grand celebration in Odisha. The crowd filled with enthusiasm gathers for this extravaganza of the festival of chariots in the Puri. And here Q-Manager has gathered some of the important insights related to this festival.
The Jagannath Rath Yatra this year has begun on 14th July amidst great enthusiasm of the devotees and the Ulta Rath or Bahuda Yatra or return car will take place on July 23rd.
This grand festival of Nine Days is celebrated by taking Lord Jagannath with his elder brother Balabhadra and his sister Subhadra to Gundicha Temple on “Rath”. They rest here for a week and then the trio return to their own temple with the crowd following this “Yatra Path”. It is believed that this annual journey of Lord Jagannath with the two siblings is done to meet their aunt for a change after deity Lord Jagannath is believed to catch the high fever for a week prior to this festival.
The crowd here is just unimaginable where everyone just wishes to take a glimpse of an idol of God for the healthy and happy life. Both sides of the road are filled with people who wish to get the blessings of their beloved God.
The three Raths are pulled with ropes and it is believed to be a lucky thing if one gets a chance to do this task for once in his/her life.
Even when the special arrangements of security and crowd control are done to control heavy crowds by the Puri administration, it is people’s responsibility to take care of their own and their beloved one’s safety.
One should be careful from the pushes and jerks and should not indulge in any activities that may lead to harm for others.
