Rath Yatra


Unfortunately this year we will not be able to take the Rath Yatra festival to the streets between Shree Swaminarayan Temple - Kenton and Shree Swaminarayan Mandir - Stanmore, instead we will celebrate at the temple. Come join us in the celebration where you'll have the chance of swaying Lord Jagannathji in a divine palki.

  • 11am - 12pm - Jaganath Palki Yatra
  • 12pm - 3pm - Funday and BBQ

What is Rath Yatra?

Rath Yatra is a celebration where Lord Jagannath is seated in a divine chariot (Rath) and taken through the city of Jagannath Puri. As the chariot is pulled along, everyone chants the name of the Lord whilst gracefully dancing. It is traditional for devotees to bring offerings to the Lord and to gather after the procession to perform a Poojan in the company of learned Saints and Brahmins.
