Jagannatha - Subhadra

Jagannatha - Subhadra Locals believe that there existed an incestuous relationship between Jagannatha and his sister Subhadra, which provoked abuses when the images were out in public. The entire yatra is a symbolic humanization of God and an attempt to bring God down from his pedestal of glory to a more human level. http://www.festivalsofindia.in/rathyatra/
