History Of ISKCON Ratha Yatra:

1

In the year 1979, ISKCON started service in Rajapur Jagannath Temple. Ratha Yatra used to perform within ISKCON campus. From 1998, ISKCON started ratha yatra from Rajapur to Mayapur (ISKCON). But that time no particular deities were allocated for Ratha Yatra. In 2007, Sripad Jagadhatriha Das, Sripad Aloy Govinda Das, took initiative to make huge Jagannath, Balaram, Suvadra vigraha(deity). It took six months to complete the whole vigraha. From 2008, new deities with three gigantic Ratha was there for ISKCON Ratha Yatra. Now ISKCON Ratha Yatra festival is as famous as Sree Khestra Ratha Yatra. Millions of devotees come to see the Ratha Yatra in Mayapur.

Jai Jagannath!!!
