Amdavad, kevi rahi tamari Rath yatra?
The Rath yatra turned out to be one of the happening events this year. As per the tradition, colourful elephants had the first glimpse of Lord Jagannath and led the procession, that set off from the 400 year old iconic Jagannath temple in Jamalpur.
This tradition has been going on since the last 136 years. Lord Jagannath is out on the city tour to give his glimpse to his people. The Rath Yatra procession passed through different parts of the city and covered a distance of 14 kms.
The Yatra finally ended peacefully and the procession returned to the Jagannath temple-starting point. For those who had a glimpse of the deities today consider themselves fortunate.
Hope that the Gods remain happy and shower their blessings on each one of us; that we have many such processions to look forward in the future.
