Corona Effect On RathYatra: Ritual Performed By Pulling Chariot

Bhopal. Lord Jagannath Rath Yatra was carried out this time also with simplicity like last year. The Rath Yatra was not allowed by the government due to corona infection, so the event was not organized on a large scale. Following the tradition, this time Rath Yatra was taken out around the temple premises. Devotees participated in the Rath Yatra and pulled the strings of the chariot with the cheers of Lord Jagannath. Every year Jagannath Rath Yatra Festival is celebrated with pomp in the capital. On this occasion, Rath Yatra is taken out in the new and old city. This time too, the preparations for the Rath Yatra were going on in the temples, but the government did not give permission so that there is no crowd, so a symbolic yatra was taken out by the temple committees following the guidelines of the government. Before this, the deities of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra, Subhadra were worshiped in the temples. He was placed in a chariot. After this the tradition was maintained by taking out Rath Yatra in and around the temple premises.
