The Devasnana Purnima or Snana Yatra rituals of Lord Jagannath and his siblings at Puri Srimandir commenced on Tuesday with devotees being able to witness the divine bathing ritual of the Lords, after a gap of two years.
Going as per times fixed by the Sri Jagannath Temple Administration (SJTA), the rituals began after 3:30 am starting with Mangalaparna. Later, the deities were ushered from Ratna Singhasan to Snana Bedi in Dhadi Pahandi.
