  1. The Rath Yatra at puri is celebrated in honour lord Jagannath or Vishnu. As per WikipediaRatha Yatra  ; a transliteration also romanized as Ratha-Yatra or anglicized as Car festival or Chariot festival) is an Odia festival that involves moving deities Jagannath, Balabhadra, Subhadra and Sudarshana on a ratha or rotho, a wooden deula-shaped chariot).

    Notable ratha yatras include the Ratha yatra of Puri, the Dhamrai Ratha Yatra and the Ratha Yatra of Mahesh. The festival was originated in Puri, Odisha. The English word juggernaut was originated from Jagannath that is related to the massive and unstoppable “ratha” carrying Jagannath.
