#History
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 “Nandighosa”, and has a height of 45 feet.

Wishing all an auspicious #RathaJatra one of the grandest celebrations ever in India, in fact would say in the world. May blessings of Jagannatha, Balabhadra and Subhadra be with you all. #JaiJagannatha
While #RathaJatra is celebrated all over India and in other countries too, it is the #Puri one that is the most famous of all. Puri being the seat of the Jagannatha temple and one of the 4 centres set up by Adi Shankara makes it significant. #JaiJagannath
Puri one of the holiest lands also known as Shrikshetra, Purushottamapuri, a land blessed by sages like Bhrigu, Atri, Markandeya. Also called as Shankakshetra, Neelachala. The current name is more a shorter version of Jagannatha Puri. #JaiJagannath #RathaJatra

#Thread #Kurukshetra #Analytics #Mahabharata
Started a fun project of mine today. Recording the duels of Kurukshetra war in an excel sheet in anticipation of some interesting pattern. Watch this space for interesting tidbits. Full exercise may take quite a while
Interesting Results! #Kurukshatra #Analytics. So many duels without a declared result on Day One
Could record two general battles and 26 duels on Day One. Only 6 of those duels ended decisively. Pandava side suffered horribly in the hands of Bhishma. Uttara killed in the hands of Shalya. Saving grace being Abhimanyu countering Bhishma and winning over Brihadbala #Kurukshetra
