Ratha Yatra

Ratha Yatra literally means chariot pilgrimage Though this festival time is very special in India, the main Rath Yatra takes place in the holy town of Puri. At other places, those devotees of Lord Jagannath, who cannot make it to Puri, take out similar processions on a much smaller scale. Notable are the ones at Ramnagar (near Varanasi), Serampore (near Calcutta) and Jagannathpur (near Ranchi). http://www.pilgrimage-india.com/east-india-pilgrimage/puri-rath-yatra.html
