Lord Jaganath Rath Yatra on Saturday, July 13th 2019

Hindu Temple and Cultural Center of South Carolina is blessed to celebrate Lord Jaganath Rath Yatra on Saturday, July 13th at 10:00 am.
Rath Yatra is celebrated every year on Ashad Shukla Dwitiya that generally falls between the months of June-July. The festival is celebrated to commemorate the annual visit of the presiding deities of the Jagannath Puri temple to their Aunt’s house. The main festival in Puri commences when the chariots of Lord Jagannath accompanied by his elder brother Balabhadra and sister Devi Subhadra are brought out on to the Main Street of Puri. The Chariots are then taken to the Shri Gundicha Temple to their aunt’s house where the deities stay for nine days.
It is believed that during this festival, Lord Jagannath comes out of their holy abode and gives Darshana (holy view) to the people.
We cordially invite you and your family to participate in this grand event. Program details are given below.

Program details are as follows:
• 10:30 am - Ganesh Pooja, Sri Jaganath Pooja followed by Rath Yatra
• 12:00 pm - Cultural Program followed by Aarti and Lunch Prasadam
