Puri Rath Yatra Schedule Decided: Chariot Pulling To Start At 5 PM

OB Bureau

Puri: The three chariots of sibling deities of Jagannath temple in Puri will be pulled from 5 pm during this year’s Rath Yatra as the rituals for three major events have to be performed on the same day.

The detailed schedule of the rituals for the Rath Yatra on July 7 was drawn up at a meeting of Chhatis Nijog (servitors’ body) and Niti Sub-Committee of the temple management in the Pilgrim Town on Monday. The final schedule will be announced after the temple managing committee approves it at a meeting on Tuesday.

The schedule was decided in the line of the programme for Rath Yatra in 1971 when similar situation had cropped up. In a rare occurrence, the festivals of Rath Yatra, Nabajouban Darshan and Netrotsav would be celebrated on the same day.

As per the schedule, the ritual of Angyamala from the temple will be done away this time also. The chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra will be taken from Ratha Khala (chariot making workshop) directly to Singhadwar (Lions Gate) in front of the temple.

Following are schedule of the rituals on the day of Rath Yatra:

Mangal Arati: 2 am

Dasavatar Bahudabije: 2.40 am

Opening of Anasarghara: at 3 am

Netrotsav Puja: 4 am

Dwarapala Puja: 5.25 am

Gopal Ballav & morning puja: 6 to 7 am

Senapata Lagi: 7.30 am to 12 noon

Dhadi Pahandi: 1.10 pm

Completion of Pahandi: 2.30 pm

Chhera Pahanra: 4 pm

Charatphita: 4.30 pm

Chariot pulling: 5 PM

While the Bahuda Yatra (return car festival) will be celebrated on July 15, the Sunabesha of the Lords will be held on July 17, as per the schedule.

Chief Administrator of Shree Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA) Vir Vikram Yadav presided the meeting which was attended by district collector Siddharth Shankar Swain, SP Pinak Mishra, senior officers of the district administration and representatives of Chhatis Nijog.
