Rathyatra

This is a story of Krishna and Rathyatra.

Rathyatra festival is dedicated to Lord Jagannath (Lord Krishna), his sister Goddess Subhadra and his elder brother Lord Balaram.


Significance of the festival:


Rath Yatra commemorates the journey of Lord Krishna from Gokul to Mathura. The festival is organised in Puri. It is said that every year, Lord Krishna wishes to visit his birthplace Mathura. The yatra is conducted to fulfil his desire. It is organised from Jagannath temple to Gundicha temple in Odisha.


The yatra is organised in a chariot. The chariots are the main attraction of the yatra. The trio of Lord Krishna, Goddess Subhadra, and Balaram spend a whole week in the Gundicha temple and then they are returned to their original places. This ceremony is called Badhu Yatra.


All of them have a distinct chariot. Lord Krishna’s chariot is known as Garudadhwaja. Balaram’s chariot is called Taladhwaja. Subhadra’s chariot is named Padhmadhwaja.


It is a great Indian festival with the utmost religious importance.
