Dedicated To:Lord Jagannath (Lord Krishna). Visitors:Pilgrims and tourists frrom all over the world. Nearest Airport:-Bhubaneshwar - 60 KM Nearest Railway Station: Puri - 5 KM Rath Yatra in Puri – Lord Jagannath is preparing for his annual vacation to his countryside home along with his brother Balabhadra and sister Subhadra on the day of Ashadh Sud 2 this year. As in different years, the deities will be traveling from their coastal home in Puri in their royal chariots. The ‘yatra’ or journey will complete the distance in nine days, after the ‘Ratha Pratishtha’ invoking ceremony in the morning and almost a million pilgrims are expected to throng the route to escort the Lord. The preparations for the Rath Yatra are on in full swing, with artisans, craftsmen and weavers already engaged in creating a fresh new wooden chariot for the Lord. The 3 chariots for each of the deities, resemble a temple structure reaching almost 45 feet, and are pulled by a rope which is considered lucky amongst pilgrims. . The ‘darshan’ of Lord Jagannatha on the chariot is considered to be very auspicious, and worshippers believe that touching the Lord's vehicle brings prosperity. If you've ever wondered what a juggernaut actually looks like, this is where you can see it- in the great annual rath yatra (often referred to, rather prosaically, as the (Car Festival) of Lord Jagannath in Orissa. The venue for the festival is the town of Puri, famed for its temple to Lord Jagannath, as Krishna is known in this part of the country. The festival commemorates the journey of Krishna from Gokul to Mathura. For the rath yatra, three huge chariots - each with about many wheels up to 7 feet in diameter - are ritually pulled through the streets, from the Jagannath temple to the temple of Gundicha Mandir. The entire journey- back and forth- is accompanied by thousands of pilgrims, many of whom (in previous years, but fortunately no longer) threw themselves under the wheels of the 'juggernaut' in their fervour. Today, the days for the yatra are holidays, when all of Puri becomes one huge fairground and temple rolled into one. This chariot festival of Puri takes place during the full moon in the month of Asadha (June/ July) according to the Hindu calendar. Puri being the abode of the three gods, attracts a lot of pilgrims from across India to celebrate the return of the three Gods to their mother's house. In addition to being an important pilgrimage, this event also attracts many tourists, who come to observe the procession of the Jagannath Chariots. The rath yatra festival is also called as Gundicha Jatra, Ghosa Jatra, Navadina Jatra or Dasavatara Jatra
