The term Nabakalebara (Oriya: ନବ କଳେବର, Sanskrit: नवकलेवर) is an ancient ritual associated with most of the Jagannath Temples when the Idols of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra, Subhadra and Sudarshan are replaced by a new set of Idols.

The deities are going to change their bodies during leap month. So one lunar month of the Asadha is followed by another lunar month of Ashadha. The Margo trees are selected every time for making deities. Any ordinary tree with extraordinary features can only become the body of the deity or Daru Bramha. The Darus should be different for each deity. Such as :
