Dear Wikimedians, Ratha Jatra is one of the longest running festivals of Odisha running for over a month. The festival starts from Akshaya Trutiya and ends after Bahuda Jatra.This festival dates back to more than 1000 years.
This year, a few Wikimedians from Puri are documenting the process of building the ratha (chariot) making . They are also uploading every phase of the building process on Wikimedia Common. Many of the images have been already uploaded and a lot more are going to uploaded in the due course of time. https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wiki_Loves_Ratha_Jatra You can see the pictures in the project category : https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Wiki_Loves_Ratha_Jatra Co-ordinators: 1.
