Rathayatra is celebrated by devotees of Lord Krishna all over the world after being introduced to the west in 1967 in San Franscisco by His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada and his first American disciples.

Ratha Yatra, the festival of the chariots, is a procession of Lord Krishna in his form of Jagannatha, Lord of the Universe. Traditionally held in Puri, eastern India, where hundreds of thousands of pilgrims sing and dance in the procession, the festival now takes place in cities all over the world

Rathayatra is the International Society for Krishna Consciousness‘ biggest street festival. It features huge, wooden chariots pulled by hand in a grand procession.

All the way through there is melodious singing, chanting and dancing to rhythmical drums and cymbals.
