Jagannath Chandan Yatra

C handan Yatra is a very sweet festival to remember and meditate on various pastimes of the Lord. A festival that Lord kindly favors everyone to do some personal service for Him- grinding chandan, decorating, swinging Him etc… Summer festival has its own flavour. As per the tradition, Chandan Yatra festival started at Puri. In the Narendra Sarovara tank, Their Lordships Jagannath, Baladeva and Subhadra go on boat ride or nauka vihar with beautiful festivities. Today Lord Jagannath gave darshan as “Gajendra Varada”- the one who gave liberation to Gajendra. He was dressed as Rajadhi Raja on 10th May, Supreme Emperor.

Chandan Yatra ki Jai!
