Coming 29th July, Witness the biggest and oldest Rathyatra in the world at Puri. The tradition dates back to 1150 AD when the Temple of Jagganath was completed. The festival is important in two aspects – chhera pahara, wherein the Gajapati Kings descendants sweeps the area around the Deity and also cleans the path on which the Chariot is moving. This is done on both and Last day of the festival to signify the fact that in the eyes of Lord all beings are ewual. In the Ratha Yatra, the three deities are taken from the Jagannath Temple in the chariots to the Gundicha Temple, where they stay for seven days.
