It is time for the great Rath Yatra of Puri! Where millions of devotees flock to the coastal town in the state of Odisha to witness the event of a lifetime. The holy trinity of deities – Sri Jagannatha, Balabhadra and Subhadra, come out of the magnificent Jagannatha temple for their annual chariot ride to meet Devi Gundicha, 9 kilometres away. They are each sojourned in 45 foot tall splendid, embellished chariots, called a Ratha.
The process of making the Ratha in Puri is a very extensive and elaborate process - successfully created through the culminated efforts and dedication of several craftsmen such as carpenters, blacksmiths, helpers, painters and tailors who work on a strict 58-day schedule. These craftsmen toil and work tirelessly to create the three most majestic and breathtaking chariots for the three gods.
Nandighosa, the biggest of the three chariots, is the name of the Ratha (Chariot) of Sri Jagannatha, or lord of the universe.
