Rath Yatra marks the nine-day sojourn of Lord Jagannath and his siblings at the Gundichha Temple. The festival is native to the state of Odisha. It is celebrated with pomp and joy across the globe.

Every year, three chariots are built for the event for Lord Jagannath, Devi Subhadra and Lord Balabhadra. Lakhs of devotees pull these chariots as the deities march towards the Gundicha Temple. The festival lasts for a good 15 days. Devotees consider that touching the rope of Lord Jagannath's chariot will cleanse their sins and free them from the cycle of rebirth, as believed in the Hindu religion.
