Rath Yatra

Rath Yatra
  • Celebrated on/during: July
  • Significance:

    In the country’s three oldest and biggest Ratha Yatras, Panna’s Rath Yatra is also included. This magnificent religious festival, which is held here on the lines of Jagannathpuri of Odisha, has a glimpse of the majestic beauty and splendor. During the Rath Yatra, thousands of devotees from across the Bundelkhand area get a glimpse of Lord Jagannath Swamy. This historic Rath Yatra of Panna was started about 166 years ago by the then Panna Naras Maharaja Kishore Singh, which is continuously continuing as per tradition.
    According to the Hindu calendar, on the second date of the Ashadh Shukla month, like the Jagannath Temple of Puri, the Rath Yatra comes out every year. Even during the Rath Yatra, Lord Jagannath, along with his sister Subhadra and brother Balram, goes out of the temple for a walk out. This unique Rath Yatra starts from Panna and reaches Janakpur on the third day.
