Puri, July 6: Gajapati Maharaj Dibyasingha Deb will perform Chhera Panhara (a ritual of sweeping the chariots) rituals during the annual Rath Yatra.

‘Chhera Pahara is the ritual, where the Puri king perform sweeping the chariots. This ritual is performed before the devotees pulled the chariots.

This year, the annual Rath Yatra is being organised without devotees due to Covid-19 restrictions.
