Ratha Yatra

Ratha Yatra

Ratha Yatra is a Hindu festival celebrating the annual journey of the deities Jagannath, Baladeva, and Subhadra from the Jagannath Temple in Puri to the Gundicha Temple. The festival is celebrated on the second day of the waxing moon in the month of Ashadha, which falls in June or July.

In Ahmedabad, the Ratha Yatra is celebrated from Sri Sadashiv Temple in Super City, Bhadaj. The festival begins with the inauguration of the Ratha Yatra. A public address on the importance of the festival follows this. After that, Ratha Yatra begins, and the deities of Sri Sri Jagannath Baladev Subhadra and Srila Prabhupada are taken on a procession through the streets of Ahmedabad. The procession ends at the Hare Krishna Mandir.

Ratha Yatra is a time for Hindus to come together and celebrate their faith. It is also a time for people of all faiths to come together and learn about Hindu culture. The festival is a joyous occasion and a great way to experience the vibrant culture of Ahmedabad.

If you are interested in participating in the Ratha Yatra festival in Ahmedabad, you can get involved in several ways. You can sponsor the decorations for the Ratha or the naivedya of the deities. You can also volunteer your time to help with the preparations for the festival or to help with the procession.

Ratha Yatra is a beautiful opportunity to experience Ahmedabad's rich culture and celebrate the festival. I encourage you to come and participate in the Ratha Yatra this year.
