Bhubaneswar: An artist of Odisha named Biswajit Nayak has created a chariot of Lord Jagannath with 975 ice-cream sticks.
Biswajit Nayak said, “I created a miniature of Nandighosa’s chariot (Lord Jagannath) with 975 ice-creams sticks. I have tried to ensure the same specifications as that of Lord’s chariot.”
Adding to it Nayak said that the chariot has 16 wheels and four horses and it took five days to make it.
Nayak created the chariot ahead of Rath Yatra associated with Lord Jagannath, an annual festival celebrated at Puri, in Odisha.
On Tuesday the Supreme Court rejected a batch of petitions seeking directions to celebrate Rath Yatra across Odisha and not only in Puri Jagannath Temple.
Moreover, the Odisha government has permitted to conduct the Rath Yatra only in Puri Jagannath Temple maintaining the Covid-19 rules and regulations.
