Rathyatra Celebration at Memnagar Gurukul, Ahmedabad
Dear friends & respected devotees:
The 04th July 2008 was Rathyatra Day as per the Indian calendar. The tradition of Rathyatra procession is originated from Jagannathpuri, Orrisa since many centuries. The Ahmedabad Jagannath Temple also celebrates it since last 131 years, which is regarded as second biggest event of such kind after the main Rathyatra at Puri.
We are delighted to inform you that Shree Swaminarayan Gurukul, Memnagar, Ahmedabad has taken initiative, and this year, it was first time ever, Rathyatra Celebration was held on a huge scale, in the western part of Ahmedabad, from our Gurukul Temple at Memnagar. We all know that the statues of deities of all the four shrines of India (Dwarika, Badrinath, Jagannath & Rameshwar) have been installed at the newly-constructed Prayer Hall at Memnagar Gurukul.
The celebration started at 04:00 p.m. on Friday, the 04th July 2008 from Ahmedabad Gurukul and more than 4000 devotees joined the procession. Lord shree Krishna, with elder brother Shree Balaram & sister Subhadra, were riding in a gigantic wooden chariot, which was pulled by the saints & devotees. More than 10 theme-based floats and around 100 bike riders, horse riders, traditional dance groups of students, male & female devotees were the main attraction of the Rathyatra procession. The deities returned to the temple at 07:00 p.m. and the celebration was followed by poojan of H. H. Shastriji Maharaj Shree Dharmjivandasji Swami.
