Niladri Bije is a centuries-old Puri Temple custom and the ritual of Lord Jagannath associated with the Ratha Jatra. It marks the entry of the Gods to the Temple after their trip to their aunt’s place. Rasagola works its magic to open the Temple’s gate for Lord Jagannath.

On this last day of the Ratha Jatra, Lord Jagannath is permitted to enter the Temple premises only after he offers Rasagolas to his wife, Goddess Lakshmi, to appease her for the slight of leaving her behind in the temple.

Rasagola Dibasa is based on Niladri Bije and the dates of Ratha Jatra & Niladri Bije vary each year as per the tithi. This year Niladri Bije and thus Rasagola Dibasa is on July 23, 2021.

People throughout the state consider the Rasagolas prepared by the Kar brothers, the descendants of a local confectioner, Bikalananda Kar, in the town of Salepur, near Cuttack to be the best. Today this rasgulla famously named Bikali Kar Rasgulla is sold all over Odisha. Another variant of this dish that is made in the town of Pahal, located between the cities of Bhubaneswar and Cuttack, is also very popular.

The first Rasagola Dibasa was celebrated on July 30, 2015.

Happy Rasagola Dibasa to all. Remember now every year it will be celebrated on Niladri Bije.

  1. ” is this the only piece of heritage that you can show off to the world? Seriously there are better things to latch onto 🙂
    chaitanna mahaprabhu did come from GEOGRAPHICAL ORISSA but back then there was no orissa, are we forgetting this?
    and your dear lord ASHOKA the great wasn’t your hero too until he defeated your so called “kalinga empire”. he was a scavenger of kalinga and not a king 🙂
    your bali, sumatra etc “J(y)ATRAS” came form LORD ASHOKA’S INVASION of your pillage state.
    the regular oriya isn’t sweet at all, its rather very harsh, its rather the languages like sambalpuri and languages near the west bengal border where the oriya dialects turn sweeter. would you not agree?
    sambalpuri is such a cute language! why are you guys stomping it down to non-exitence and these guys want their language to prosper just like yours. give them their due!
    oh, btw, i forgot to mention YOUR BEST CM (infact my best CM too, one of the best CMs our country ever had) doesn’t even speak Oriya! ”
