Rath Yatra 2022: Trinity to move to Adapa Mandapa today


Puri: A day after Rath Yatra, Lord Balabhadra, Jagannath and Devi Subhadra along with Lord Sudarshan will be escorted to the Adapa Mandapa in the Gundicha Temple in Puri today. Earlier on Friday, all the three deities were ushered to the Gundicha Temple from the Srimandir in a grand procession witnessed by lakhs of devotees on the iconic Bada Danda for the first time after two years of Covid curbs.

As per tradition, the Lords spend the next day after the Gundicha Jatra seated on their respective chariots. The deities observe all their daily rituals on the raths itself during the entire day before being taken to the Adapa Mandapa.

During the stay on the chariots, devotees get the once-a-year chance to witness the besha (decoration) and other nitis of the deities, the only time they are observed outside of the Srimandir.
