Homecoming of the Trinity from Gundicha Temple to Srimandir on their chariots concluded

Puri:3/7/17: Bahuda Yatra, the homecoming of the Trinity from Gundicha Temple to Srimandir on their chariots concluded ahead of schedule today.

The three chariots Taladhwaja (Lord Balabhadra), Debadalana (Goddess Subhadra) & Nandighosa (Lord Jagannath), returned to Srimandir pulled by a sea of revering devotees marking the end to the nine-day sojourn of the Lord and his siblings to their aunt’s place – Gundicha temple.

The rituals began early as the Pahandi of the Trinity started one and a half hours ahead of schedule.

At around 12:55 PM Puri King Gajapati Dibyasingha Deb carried out the ‘Chhera Pahanra’ ritual following which the Taladhwaja began its retreat towards Srimandir at 2:08 PM. Debadalana began its journey at 2:30PM followed by Nandighosa at 3:00 PM. On their way, the Trinity made a brief halt at the ‘Mausi Maa’ temple to taste the ‘Poda Pitha’ following which the three chariots resumed their journey towards the Srimandir.

Keeping in mind the huge turnout of devotees, the Police administration had deployed around 100 platoons of force. For traffic management, 36 platoons were deployed.

“We have replicated the police arrangements of Rath Yatra for the Bahuda Yatra as well for traffic, security, darshan and chariot pulling,” said IG Central Range, Soumendra Priyadarshi.
