Every year in the summer,
one of the world’s largest and oldest festivals happens in India - the
Ratha Yatra. A Sanskrit phrase, “Ratha Yatra” literally translates into
English as “chariot procession.” As such, three richly decorated
chariots, resembling temple structures, are pulled through the streets
of the small coastal town of Puri in Eastern India.

Boston
chapter of International Society of Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON)
located on 72 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA had been celebrating this
festival for three decades now. On August 19th a large chariot carrying
the deities will make its way down Boylston Street, starting from
Massachusetts Avenue and culminating at the Boston Common Park, where a
cultural festival near Park Street T station will follow.
