Chariots reach Gundicha Temple in Puri

Ratha JatraPuri: The three chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra, finally reached Sri Gundicha temple here this morning.

Pulling of the chariots had to be halted last evening following the age old tradition of not pulling the chariots after sunset on the occasion of Ratha Jatra.

Amid tight security, thousands of devotees pulled the chariots this morning after the servitors completed the manadatory rituals atop the chariots.

The three presiding deities of Srimandir will stay at Sri Gundicha temple for nine days and return to the Srimandir on Bahuda Jatra that falls on July 3.
