Lord Balabhadra’s chariot Taladhwaja rolled on the Badadanda amidst a symphony of chants, conches and gongs. This will be followed by Darpadalana, the Chariot of Devi Subhadra and finally Lord Jagannath’s Chariot, Nandighosa, will be pulled.

All the three chariots will be pulled and placed near the Mausima temple.
