On the tenth day of ashadha (June-July) the Deities of Lord Jagannatha, Balabhadra and Subhadra, having rested at the Gundicha Mandira; are brought back to Their respective chariots and the ratha is pulled back to the main temple. This is known as Bahuda Yatra. While returning to the main temple, Lord Jagannath stops again at His "Mausima" Goddess Ardhamsini temple and receives Bogh (Poda Pitha). He then proceeds towards the King's palace where He has a meeting with Goddess Lakshmi and continues His Yatra which comes to an end at the Lord Jagannath Temple and They spend the night in the Ratha till morning.

Lord Jagannatha - Suna Besha

Next day on Bada Ekadashi, the Deities are dressed in the Suna Vesh (Golden Dress), the arms and feet made of pure gold are attached to the Deities, and are decorated by adorning Them with gold ornaments and gold crowns. This day is considered to be the most auspicious day of the festival. The devotees make Pradhakshina of the ratha by moving around the chariots. After a few hours, the golden ornaments are removed and the Deities are brought back to the temple. As usual first comes Balabhadra, then Subhadra followed by Lord Jagannath in a traditional procession amidst the huge assembly of thousands of devotees.

This year Bahuda Ratha (return Ratha Yatra, 8 days after Ratha Yatra) falls on July 22, 2018.
