After entry through Dakhina Dwara (south gate), devotees can have a darshan of the deities from the Bhitara Katha since the Jagamohan will be opened for public entry this year. Sources said the Chaka ‘Apasara’ ritual of deities will be performed at 6 am, followed by Anasara Tati and Patadian Bisarjan by 7.30 am. The ‘Parimanik’ darshan (paid ticket holders) of the Trinity will be allowed from 8 am to 9 am. General free darshan of the deities will be held from 9 am to 11 am.
Later, other rituals of the deities will start from around 11 am in preparation for Ratha Jatra. The day before Naba Jaubana besha darshan, Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra, and Devi Subhadra will be glammed up by the Dasmohapatra servitors as part of the ‘Banakalagi’ ritual.
The devotees will have a glimpse of lords, who will appear in youthful form after being recovered from the fever that they suffered following having a divine bath on the holy Snana Yatra on Snana Purnima.
