Jagannath Rath Yatra 2022 significance
The devotees will gather at the Gundicha temple on July 1 in Puri. The festival has been ongoing since June 14 and now the entire city will soak in the religious spirit of the Lords Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra. As per the holy scriptures, the sister of Lord Jagannath, Subhadra once expressed her desire to visit Puri. Then Jagannath and Balabhadra took their beloved sister Subhadra on the chariot and set out to show the city. He also went to Gundicha's aunt's house and stayed here for seven days. Since then the tradition of taking out Jagannath Yatra is going on. At the fore is the chariot of Balabhadra, behind him is sister Subhadra and at the rear is the chariot of Jagannath. This year Jagannath Yatra will start from July 1 and will end on July 12.
