Jagannath Rath Yatra festival is celebrated every year on 2nd day of shukla pakshya of the month of Ashad at Puri to perform the procession of Lord Jagannath chariots from Puri Jagannath temple to Gundicha Mata Temple.
Rath Yatra is also called Festival of Chariot. It is devoted to Lord Jagannath and celebrated to commemorate him on annual basis. The whole Rath Yatra process involves the holy procession of deities Lord Jagannath, Goddess Subhadra and Lord Balabhadra to Gundicha Mata Temple.
After nine days people bring the deities with Ratha Yatra to the same place, Jagannath temple. The returning process of Rath Yatra to the Puri Jagannath temple is called as Bahuda Jatra. The chariot carrying Lord Jagannath is called โ€œNandighosaโ€, and has a height of 45 feet.
