Thousands Pull Lord Jagannath's Chariot Till Gundicha Temple Despite Downpour In Puri Monday June 26,2017

Thousands of devotees Monday June 26,2017 pulled the chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra till their destinations at Gundicha temple,  about three kilometers from the main temple, despite downpour across the town. 

The pulling of the chariots to the Gundicha temple were halted midway yesterday due to sunset. Traditionally, chariots are not supposed to be pulled after dusk.

The deities will stay at Gundicha temple for a week during the nine-day Ratha Yatra festival. The devotees can see the Lords atop the chariot till tomorrow before they are taken to the Gundicha temple in a procession.
