World famous Rath Yatra being celebrated in Odisha

With just hours left for the world famous Rath Yatra in Puri,  servitors are busy with last minute preparations to ensure that the elaborate series of rituals of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra are completed in time. Pahandi, the ritual procession in which the deities are led to the chariots, has begun since this morning with Lord Sudarshan. Servitors brought the idol of the Lord out of the temple in a ceremonial procession and placed in the chariot.
