Puri Rath Yatra 2024: ‘Adapa Mandap Bije’ today – N.F Times


Puri: The ‘Adapa Mandap Bije’ rituals of Lord Jagannath and his siblings will be held in Puri today. The deities will be taken to ‘Adapa Mandap’ of Gundicha temple by the servitors today in a special ritual called ‘Pahandi Bije’.

The Adapa Mandapa is also considered as the birth place of the Lords. Today, all the rituals of the Lords will be performed atop the chariots.

Yesterday, the three chariots Taladhwaja, Darpadalan and Nandighosha rolled on the Grand Road from Singhadwar and reached the Gundicha Temple.

After the chariots of the Lords reach the Gundicha Temple, the deities spend a day in their respective chariots, and all the rituals are performed on the chariots. On the following day, the deities are taken inside the Gundicha Temple in a ritual known as ‘Goti Pahandi’, wherein Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra, and Devi Subhadra are seated on the ‘Adapa Mandap’. The entire ritual is known as ‘Adapa Mandap Bije.’

The ‘Charamalas’ of the chariots will be fixed after the completion of ‘Sandhya Dhupa’ and then the Holy Trinity along with Lord Sudarshana will be carried to the ‘Janmabedi’ in ‘Goti Pahandi’ by the servitors of Srimandir. Lord Madana Mohan and Ramakrushna will also be ushered into the ‘Adapa Mandap’.
