૧૩૪ મી રથયાત્રા, અમદાવાદ – 134th Rathyatra in Ahmedabad
This Sunday was a special day for hindus, a festival associated with lord Jagannath. Decorated chariots of the deities which resembles temple structure are pulled through the city. A huge human crowd joins the festival, the main Rathyatra is held at Puri in Orissa. But there are few other places in India where Rathyatra is celebrated, including Ahmedabad. In fact Ahmedabad celebrates it since last 134 years.
