 Century’s first Nabakalebara Jagannath Rath Yatra began in Puri, Odisha 

Jagannath Rath YatraThe century’s first Nabakalebara Rath Yatra (chariot festival) of the Jagannath Temple in Odisha’s coastal town of Puri began attracting lakhs of pilgrims from across the country and abroad.

Quick Facts:

  • Nabakalebara Rath Yatra occurs once in 12 or 19 years depending whichever year has two Ashadha (rainy season). Nabakalebara – periodical renewal of wooden images of all three dieties – adds significance to Rath Yatra as the chariots carry the new idols carved out of sacred woods, which are identified after elaborate rituals.
  • The chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra are called Nandighosha, Taladhwaja and Darpadalana respectively.
  • Puri’s Rath Yatra is an annual celebration, marking the annual journey of the deities from the 12th century Jagannath Temple in the chariots to the temple of Devi Gundicha (their aunt).
  • The celebration ends nine days later with Bahuda Yatra (return journey to their temple).
