Jagannath Rath Yatra, a Hindu festival dedicated to Lord Jagannath, has been celebrated for centuries in Puri, Odisha. It falls in the month of Shukla Pakshan Ashada (June-July) every year. Sayed to be the world’s oldest carriage festival, jaatra begins today, July 12, amid a coronavirus pandemic. This year, the Yatra would take place exclusively in the vicinity of Puri within a small radius, in accordance with the decision of the Supreme Court.
SC has banned Rath Yatra throughout the state of Odisha due to the expected third wave and COVID-19 Delta Plus format rising cases. This year, the Yatra will be held without the participation of enthusiasts.
Puri Jagannath Rath Yatra: History and Significance
The Jagannath Temple has enormous religious significance and is one of the four most important pilgrimages of Hinduism. In the 13th century, King Chodagan Dev erected the present temple in the Kalinga style.
At the shrine of Jagannath Pur, Shri Jagannathji, Subhadraji and Balabhadraji are revered and during Rath Yatra they ride in separate chariots to their aunt’s residence, Gundicha Temple. After an eight-day visit, they return to the Puri Temple. For peers, the distance between Jagannath Temple and Gundicha Temple is about three kilometers.
