The Ratha Yatra festival is perhaps the oldest continuously celebrated spiritual festival in the world. The chariot of 'Jagannatha', 'Balarama' and 'Subhadra' is splendidly decorated each year, and then pulled by crowds through the city streets. People of all nations and faiths are invited to join in this festival "for the soul". It features huge, wooden chariot pulled by hand in a grand procession.

Sequence of events.

  • 12:00 pm - Procession Begins
  • Follow the procession for 1.1 mile (see Map below)

All the way through there is melodious singing, chanting and dancing to rhythmical drums and cymbals. The procession ends with a stage show, a festival and delicious vegetarian prasadam feast.
