Jaggannath Puri Rath Yatra

The Jagannath Rath Yatra, also known as the Gundicha Yatra or Festival of Chariots, is an ancient Hindu celebration dating back 600 years. This festival honors the divine expedition of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Subhadra and is dedicated to Lord Jagannath, revered as the Lord of the Universe.

Annually observed on the bright half of the lunar month of Ashadh (June–July), the Rath Yatra commemorates the pilgrimage of the deities from the 12th century Jagannath Temple to the Gundicha Temple, believed to be their aunt's residence.
