An important celebration called Jagannath Rath Yatra is celebrated every year in India. According to the Hindu calendar, the Jagannath Rath Yatra event is celebrated every year in India (Shukla Paksha Dwitiya Tithi, Ashadha month).
On July 1, 2022, the celebration known as the Jagannath Puri Rath Yatra will begin in Odisha (Puri) and last until July 12, 2022. The public will finally be able to observe and take part in the live Jagannath Rath Yatra this year, making it very significant and meaningful.
Every year, Odisha’s Puri hosts the Puri Rath Yatra event. Lord Jagannath, the Supreme Being, is linked to the Rath Yatra.
The celebration is thought to have begun when Lord Jagannath’s sister, Subhadra, expressed a wish to travel to Puri (Odisha’s State). Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra, and Subhadra all departed towards Puri in a chariot to carry out Subhadra’s desire. Since that time, the Hindu calendar has been used to mark the Jagannath celebration each year.
Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra, and Goddess Subhadra depart in their chariot during the Jagganath celebration to visit the Gundicha Temple. They spend eight days in the Gundicha Temple.
The deities (Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra, and Goddess Subhadra) depart from the Gundicha Temple after the eighth day, and this time period is referred to as Bahuda Yatra.
