The “HINDU SOCIETY OF NC (HSNC)” with help from “Shree Jagannath Seva Trust of Carolinas (SJSTC)” organizing  “RATHA YATRA” in celebration of the journey of Lord Jagannath and his siblings (brother Balabhadra and sister Subhadra)  towards the sacred Gundicha Temple (Lord’s Aunts home) on Saturday , July 13 2019

Usually, the deities of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra are worshiped within the temple, but on the day of the Ratha Yatra festival they are taken through the streets so that everyone can have the fortune of seeing them. For more than 2,000 years richly decorated chariots resembling temple structures have been pulled through the streets of Jagannath Puri in Orissa, India.   Today, Ratha Yatra festivals take place in more than 100 cities around the world, commemorating the annual journey of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra to the Gundicha Temple in Puri. During the procession,devotees from far and wide come with an earnest desire to help pull the chariot by its ropes. Accompanied by drums, cymbals and other musical instruments, devotees joyfully sing the holy names of Lords as the chariots rolls down the street.

  • The ceremonies begin promptly at 10:00 am at Hindu Society of North Carolina Temple, 309 Aviation Pkwy, Morrisville. 

  • Following the procession, a grand festival showcasing India´s Spiritual Culture awaits the crowd at Hindu Society of North Carolina Cultural Hall.
