Bhubaneswar: Pahandi of Lord Balabhadra, the elder brother of Lord Jagannath, is underway in Puri now.
Now, all attractions centred on swinging of Tahiya, made of sticks, sola and flowers, on the Lord’s head. Daitapatis are escorting Lord Balabhadra in Pahandi to the Taladhwaja Rath.
After Lord Balabhadra is seated on His Rath, Pahandi of Shree Sudarshan and Devi Subhadra will be conducted. Thereafter Kalia, the loveliest name of Lord Jagannath, will come on a Pahandi and be seated on the Nandighosh Rath.
