Ratha Yatra or Ratha Jatra or Chariot Festival (Odia: ରଥଯାତ୍ରା) is a festival that involves moving deities Jagannath, Balabhadra, Subhadra and Sudarshana on a chariot (called a ratha or rotho). The festival originated in Puri, Odisha. The English word juggernaut was originated from Jagannath that is related to the massive and unstoppable “ratha” carrying Jaggannath. Accidents involving people being crushed under the wheels of the chariot have also occurred a few times.Every 19 years period NABA KALEBAR(3 deities new make with neem woods) takes place.
