Jagannath Rath Yatra will begin today at Puri, in Odisha, on a grand scale. The deities will be taken in three separate chariots to Gudicha temple, two kms away from the Jagannath temple. It will take place for nine days and end on July 29th. As three to four lakh pilgrims are expected to attend the Rath Yatra, the Odisha government has announced an insurance scheme for those who might lose their lives, in a stampede or building collapse.
