Also known as the “Chariot Festival”, Rath Yatra is marked on Ashad Shukla Dwitiya (second day in the bright fortnight of Ashad month). The main attraction is the procession of three wooden chariots, namely, Nandighosa, Taladhwaja and Devadalana bearing the deities, Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra (the elder brother of Jagannath) and Subhadra (their sister) respectively. This street procession gives even those people a chance to seek blessings of the deities who are forbidden to enter Jagannath Temple.
