The Festival of Chariots 2022, traditionally known as Jagannatha Rath Yatra, was organised on October 1 in Brisbane. The procession was accompanied by singing, dancing and a colourful exhibition of traditional India. This was an opportunity to be in the grace of Lord Krishna (Jagannatha).

The Festival of Chariots, or Ratha Yatra is a celebration of love depicted by the pulling of chariots by the community at large. The original festival in Jagannatha Puri, India, has been celebrated for over 2000 years and is one of the world’s largest annual spiritual festivals. In this festival the deities are taken out of their temples in a colourful procession to meet their devotees.
