Nagarjuna Besha Of Lord Jagannath: Live Updates From Puri
Nagarjuna Besha Concludes


It might be a coincidence, but it could not have come at a more opportune time. Like a balm to soothe the nerves of crores of devotees around the world, petrified by a once-in-a-century viral pandemic, Lord Jagannath & his divine siblings today take a rare avatar – the Nagarjuna Besha.

After 25 years, the much-awaited ritual of the Holy Trinity which falls only in the year marked with six days of Panchuka period (last five days of Kartik month) is being celebrated this year with devotion but without devotees due to Covid-19 restrictions.
