Nine day long Lord Jagnnath Puja ends with return Yatra in Arunachal Pradesh

Pasighat: The nine-day-long Jagnnath Puja (Rath Yatra) ended with the return Yatra of Lord Jagannatha, his elder brother Lord Balabhadra and sister Devi Subhadra entering into the Manipuri temple, situated at Pasighat Bazaar (opposite of Balaji temple).

The Bishnupriya Monipuri community celebrates the Rath Yatra annually with devotional favour and joy. Hundreds of devotees thronged revered Manipuri Jagnnatha temple and offered puja.

This spectacular Puja/festival is celebrated in the month of Asadha, on the second day of the lunar fortnight that falls during June-July. Popularly known as Rath Yatra, this is celebrated in the honor of Lord Jagannatha who is believed to be an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Rath Yatra commemorates the journey of Lord Krishna from Gokul to Mathura. It also symbolizes a journey to light from the dark.
