All arrangements for the Rath Yatra festival, which commences today, have been complete, Puri’s Sri Jagannath Temple administration said.
Workers, priests have geared up for the big day as the Rath Yatra is one of the biggest yatras which is held every year. Rath Yatra is a festival associated with Lord Jagannath held at Puri annually in the state of Odisha.
Like last year, the revered festival of Lord Jagannath in the pilgrim town of Puri will be held on July 12 without the participation of devotees in view of the Covid-19 situation.
Puri district collector Samarth Verma said people can witness the festival on their TV sets as the government has made arrangements to give free-of-cost feed to different channels and web portals.
