Jagannath Rath Yatra is of great importance in Sanatan Dharma. The main Leela land of Lord Jagannath is Puri in Odisha. In Odisha, half-built idols of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra and Subhadra are installed from wood. Lord’s Jagannath Rath Yatra begins at Jagannathpuri on the second day of Ashadh Shukla Paksha. The world’s famous annual Rath Yatra will be held on July 12 in the Jagannath city of Puri in Odisha’s eastern India.
On this auspicious occasion, the miniature artist L Easwar Rao has performed his art and made three chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Mata Subhadra with match sticks. Actually, Lord Rao lives with his family in Jatni village of Khurda district of Bhubaneshwar. Jagannath Rath Yatra is going to start from 12th July.
On this special occasion, Rao made a chariot of Mahaprabhu Jagannath and his brother Balabhadra and sister Mata Subhadra with a matchstick. The height of this chariot is 4. It is 5 inches and took 9 days to get ready. A total of 435 matchsticks have been used in the chariot. Each chariot has four wheels. A rope circle has been made for the corridor around the chariot. Rao described the chariot in detail and said that the idols of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra and Mata Subhadra seated inside the chariot are made of sacred neem wood. The height of all these idols is 1 inch. A small rope has been tied in front of all the chariots to make them look completely original.
