About Chariots

The three chariots of Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra are newly constructed per annum with wood of specified trees like phassi, dhausa, etc. they're customarily brought from the ex-princely state of Daspalla by a specialist team of carpenters who have hereditary rights and privileges for an equivalent . The logs are traditionally set afloat as rafts within the river Mahanadi. These are collected near Puri then transported by road.

The three chariots are decorated as per the unique scheme prescribed and followed for hundreds of years stand on the Bada Danda, the Grand Avenue. The chariots are lined across the wide avenue ahead of the temple on the brink of its eastern entrance, which is additionally referred to as the Singhadwara or the Lion's Gate.

suAround each of the chariots are nine Parsva devatas, painted wooden images representing different deities on the chariots' sides. Each chariot features a charioteer (Sarathi) and 4 horses.

How to make chariot

The main feature of the Puri Rath Yatra festival, which happens in July per annum in Odisha, is that the towering temple-shaped chariots that carry the three deities from the Jagannath Temple. The chariots are an architectural marvel.

What's really fascinating is that the detailed process by which the chariots are newly made per annum . it is a labor of affection for around 200 carpenters, helpers, blacksmiths, tailors, and painters who work tirelessly consistent with a strict 58-day deadline. The craftsmen don't follow written instructions. Instead, all the knowledge is handed down from generation to generation. just one family of carpenters has hereditary rights to the development of the chariots.

The process takes places in various stages, each coinciding with an auspicious festival on the Hindu calendar . a number of the most stages are as follows.

The temple-shaped chariots within the Puri Rath Yatra festival have special meaning. The concept is explained within the holy text, the Katha Upanishad. The chariot represents the body, and therefore the deity inside the chariot is that the soul. Wisdom acts because the charioteer that controls the mind and its thoughts.

There's a famous Odia song that says that the chariot merges and becomes one with Lord Jagannath during the festival. Simply touching the chariot or rope that pulls it's believed to bring prosperity.

They're hand carved usually every 12 years (although the shortest period has been eight years and therefore the longest 19 years) during a process referred to as Nabakalebara. this suggests "new body". The festival takes on added importance within the years that this happens. 

The wooden logs are supplied freed from cost by the Odisha government . They're delivered to the world outside the Jagannath Temple office on Vasant Panchami (also mentioned as Saraswati Puja), the birthday of Saraswati the goddess of data . This takes place in January or February. Over 4,000 pieces of wood are required to form the chariots, and therefore the government started a plantation program in 1999 to replenish forests. The cutting of the logs to the specified sizes gets underway at sawmills on Ram Navami, the birthday of Lord Ram, in March or April.

Construction of chariot

Chariot construction takes place at the front of the royal palace near the Jagannath Temple in Puri. It commences on Akshaya Tritiya, a very auspicious occasion in April or May.

The priests, wearing bright attire, sing and carry garlands that are delivered to the chief carpenters. The work on all three chariots begins and ends simultaneously. It starts with the wheels, resembling the massive , round eyes of Lord Jagannath. a complete of 42 wheels are required for the three chariots. The wheels are affixed to the principal axles on the Judgment Day of Chandan Yatra. Devotees are available droves to pay homage.

Decoration of chariot

The wood is carved with designs inspired by Odisha temple architecture. The frames and wheels of the chariots also are colorfully painted with traditional designs. The canopies of the chariots are covered in approximately 1,250 meters of intricately embroidered green, black, yellow, and red cloth. This dressing of the chariots is administered by a team of tailors who make cushions for the gods to rest on also .

On the day before the festival starts, within the afternoon, the chariots are dragged to the Lions Gate entrance of the Jagannath Temple. subsequent morning, on the primary day of the festival (known as Sri Gundicha), the deities are taken out of the temple and installed within the chariots.

What Happens to the Chariots After the Rath Yatra Is Finished?
