Puri: Pujapanda servitors of Shree Jagannath Temple today performed ‘Agyan Mala Bije’ (Garland of consent) ritual on the three chariots of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra a day before the Rath Yatra here.

Following this ritual, the three chariots will be drawn from Rath Khala (Chariot making yard). It will be parked in front of Singha Dwara of the 12th century shrine for deities’ nine-day sojourn starting tomorrow. 

Lakhs of devotees are expected to visit Puri on Thursday to witness the annual car festival in which the deities come out from the sanctum sanctorum and board the three chariots and visit Gundicha temple.
