Rath Yatra is celebrated to pay tribute to Lord Jagannath’s visit to his birthplace annually and it is celebrated at Jagannath temple, Puri. The Jagannath Puri Temple is one of the four most sacred temples in the four directions of the India.

The three large chariots are created during the occasion in which the idols of Lord Jagannath, his brother Balbhadra and sister Subhadra included. These chariots are pulled by strings during the entire Yatra.
