Rath Yatra or the Rath Festival is one of the most auspicious festivals of India. Puri Rath Yatra is an important festival for the people of Orissa. Rath Yatra or a journey on chariots is a popular event highlighting richly decorated chariots pulled along the streets of Puri where devotees gather to catch a glimpse of the Lord and his associates. In yester years the Kings of Orissa swept the road on which the chariots plied with brooms made of gold.
 
  Abound with festivities and socio-religious activities India's potent religious fervor can be seen in the frenzied activities carried out by devout pilgrims who throng the premises of the famous Jagannath Temple in Puri in the month of July. An incarnated form of Lord Krishna according to mythology, Lord Jagannath along with his brother Lord Balabhadra and sister Subhadra set out for an annual visit to his aunt's home at Gundicha Mandir which is situated at a distance of 2 kms from the Puri temple.
 
  In a country where pilgrimages are of immense religious value, they represent an inward journey through hardships and hurdles to attain salvation or God. It is this journey of life where the Gita emphasizes is a journey of experience leading to truth, knowledge and light. Rath Yatra though is celebrated all through out the country, many devotees go to Puri with a desire to touch the ropes of the chariot since it is considered auspicious and a pious deed. Many brave the huge crowd and risk their lives to touch the ropes.
 
 
 
   
  Long processions accompanying the chariot play drums and tambourines and sing devotional songs. The chariot is approximately 45 feet high and are pulled by thousands who attend the event. Rath Yatra is telecasted by many Indian television channels. Rath Yatra or procession on chariots finds mention in Hindu vedic scriptures and epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana where wars were fought on chariots drawn by horses.
