One million people came to visit the gods.The Jagannath Temple of Puri is one of the four most famous holy pilgrimages of the Hindus. The festival of Rath Yatra celebrated here on the second day of the bright fortnight of Ashada (June-July), is world famous for the enormous crowd of devotees that gathers to witness Lord Jagannath's yearly journey in his huge chariot. Lord Jagannath, with his brother Balabhadra and sister Subhadra, goes to his garden house for five days. At the end of the five days, the three siblings are brought back to the Jagannath temple ( A temple where non hindou can't have access) in a procession called the Ultarath.
