Car Festival Or RathaYatra
Of Sri jagannatha Puri



One of the most awaited festivals in the Orissa state as well as in
India, Jagannath Rath Yatra is an annual event, which is celebrated

in the month of June or July. It is dedicated to Lord Jagannath
(Lord Krishna), his sister Goddess Subhadra and his elder brother
Lord Balabhadra. It is also called Gundicha Yatra, Chariot Festival,

Dasavatara and Navadina Yatra.



It is the oldest Ratha Yatra
celebrated in the India and all over
the world. This festival is celebrated
on the second day of the Shukla
Paksha, Ashadh month as per
the traditional Oriya calendar. It is
considered most auspicious to visit
the temple during this period. The
festival in Odisha is celebrated for
nine days, the commencement of
this festival is called as the Rath
Yatra and the return journey on a
ninth day is called as Bahuda Jatra.

The celebrated Ratha Yatra Festival
is said to have started in the time
of Svarochisha Manu of the second
manvantara and is predicted to
continue until the end of the second
half of Lord Brahma’s lifetime.
Even in the Valmiki Ramayana, it
20 is mentioned that when Lord Rama
was getting ready to leave this
world, he told Vibhishan, Ravana’s
younger brother, to worship Lord
Jagannatha, the Lord of the Iksvaku
dynasty in His absence.

The Skanda Purana also fixes
the date of the Ratha Yatra as the
second day of the bright fortnight if
the month of Ashadha, a day called
Pushyami Nakshatra by astrological
calculations. The Padma Purana
describes that in Purushottama-

ritual was performed in 1912,
1931, 1950, 1969, 1977,
1996, and 2015.

Nabakalebara: The
making of God

Since the idols of Lord
Jagannath, his elder brother
Balabhadra and sister
Subhadra are made from
wood, they decay over time
and need to be replaced. The
new idols are crafted from
neem wood. However, not all
neem trees are suitable for
this purpose. According to the
scriptures, the trees need to
have certain qualities (such as
specific number of branches,
color, and location) for each of
the idols.

How is the Festival

The festival begins with the idols of Lord
Jagannath, along with his elder brother
Balabhadra and sister Subhadra, being
taken out of their abode in the Jagannath
Temple. The three of them travel to
Gundicha Temple, a few kilometers
away. They remain there for seven days
before returning via Mausi Maa Temple,
the abode of Lord Jagannath’s aunt.

The idols are transported on towering
chariots, which have been made to

its name of Ratha Yatra. The Chariot
