Nabakalebara 21.6.2015

Nabakalebara is symbolic recreation of wooden forms of the four deities at Jagannath Temple, Puri. In Jagannath cult this is a periodical renewal of the wooden forms of Jagannath, Balabhadra, Subhadra and Sudarshan. The occasion occurs every 8th or 12th or 19th year of the previous Nabakalebara.
The term Nabakalebara is an ancient ritual associated with Lord Jagannath Temple of Puri when the Idols of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra, Subhadra and Sudarshan  are replaced by a new set of Idols.
This nice FDC was given to me by my Dear Friend Commodore Bibhu Mohanti.
