The preparations are in full swing to celebrate the grand rath yatra to be organised under the aegis of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), with full fanfare. The procession of the chariot carrying the deities of Lord Jagannath, sister Subhadra and brother Balabhadra (Balram) will be moved around the city to give darshan to his beloved devotees.

Starting from Akhand Jyoti temple, Motibagh, the rath would pass through Rajbada, Anand Chowpatty, Jawahar Marg, Dhanmandi, Bakhwar Marg, Mohan Talkies Ghoda Chowpatty, before reaching back to Sawariya Seth temple located at Trimurthi Nagar.

Welcome arches are being erected at some points where devotees would shower flower petals and offer aarti to the deities. Mahaprasad will be distributed during the Yatra. Kirtan teams will join from different places. Different committees have been set up to ensure a peaceful procession.

Dr Ashok Shastri said that the significance of the Yatra stems from the fact that this is when the Lord comes out of his sanctum sanctorum to enable the common man to have his darshan.
