Suna Besha of Lord Jagannath 2015 photos from Puri

Suna Besha of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra held in Puri on 27 July 2015 (Monday).

The newly-carved deities donned at least 208-kg gold. The Suna Besha (golden avatar) darshan for the deities continued till night.

Legend has it that Suna Besha was introduced during the era of King Kapilendra Deb in 1460 AD. “He conquered a kingdom and brought huge quantities on gold on 16 elephants to Puri. He donated all the gold to the Jagannath Temple,” said Rabindranath Pratihari, a veteran temple servitor.

The temple witnesses Suna Besha on four other occasions, Dussehra, Kartika Purnima, Pausa Purnima and Dola Purnima, in a calendar year. While the four rituals are observed inside the temple, the Suna Besha, performed following Rath Yatra, is celebrated on chariots outside the temple.
