Hindu Festival of Chariots celebrated in Endlciffe Park

The Rathayatra Festival was celebrated in Sheffield for the second year running.  The Hindu Festival original believed to be 5,000 years old,  has the deities, Lord Jagannatha and his sister Subhdara and brother Balabhadra travelling through the streets on Chariots so that the wider public gets a chance to see them. Lord Jagannatha is one of the representations  of Lord Krishna.  When the British first saw the Festival they were said to be so over awed by the size of the Chariots that the name Jagannatha became the root of the word Juggeranaut in English.
