Bahuda Yatra: Chhera Panhara rites

Puri: The important ritual of “Chhera Panhara” was conducted smoothly, where Puri Gajapati Dibyasingha Deb flooded three cars before they were withdrawn by a large number of devotees.
Chhera Pahanra is the second phase of the festival, where King Puria arrived to the Gundich temple dressed in impeccable white clothes, worn by a silver palanka, and climbed on the car one at a time.
First, he offered prayers to the divine sitting on a chariot and then clearing the platforms with a golden broom, spraying flowers and scented water on the surface of the car.
The world famous Rath Yatra Lord Jagannatha ends with Bahuda Yatrom. That day, Lord Jagannath and his two brothers and sisters, Balaram and Subhadra, returned to their original place of residence, Sriramandir, after spending a week at Gundich’s temple.
