Nagarjuna Besha: Sudarsan Pattnaik creates beautiful sand art

Puri: Internationally acclaimed sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik created the murals of the Holy Trinity’s  rare Nagarjuna Besha.

Taling to his social media handle, Pattnaik posted picture of his artwork.



Nagarjuna Besha of Lord Jagannath  is happening after 26 years, that is being held today at Puri Srimandir.

This celebration of Nagarjuna Besha is special since it is observed only in those years where the ‘panchuka’, the last five days of the holy month of Karthika, is observed for six days.

Devotees missed out on witnessing Nagarjuna Besha of the Trinity in Sri Jagannath temple this year due to restrictions induced by the COVID pandemic.
