Preparations for the world famous Chandan Jatra at Puri on occasion of the Akshaya Tritiya tomorrow have reached final stages. The idol of Madanamohan, the living representative of Lord Jagannatha, and idols of Ramakrushna, Bhoodevi, Shreedevi and Panchu Pandava will ride boats, known as Chapa Krida, in the Narendra Pokhari tank in the evening from tomorrow during the 21-day Chandan Jatra.

As devotees will throng the pilgrim city in large numbers to witness the Chapa Krida after a gap of two years, the Puri District administration, district police and the Shree Jagannatha Temple Administration (SJTA) have made elaborate arrangements for the jatra.
