Puri Rath Yatra or Puri Jagannath Rathyatra is the world famous chariot festival held in Puri Jagannath Temple, Orissa. The chariot festival is held in second day of bright fortnight in Ashad month (Ashad Shukla Dwitiya) as per Odiya calendar.
Hare Krishna Dham Houston feels particularly blessed by Sri Sri Radha Nila Madhava, who historically inspired the appearance of Lord Jagannath and, who has been steadily worshiped since 1986 at Hare Krishna Dham. Now Sri Sri Nila Madhava in His form as Lord Jagannath has mercifully agreed to perform His ratha yatra pastimes in Houston again.
For the first time the ratha yatra is being made accessible to all local Houstonians by The Hare Krishna Dham Houston, and SKAI Foundation, underscoring the fact that Jagannath is Lord of the Universe. This ancient and sacred festival at Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney Street, Houston, Texas 77010 on July 13 is a celebration of the cultural diversity of Houston hoping to improve interfaith tolerance, unity & understanding.
