The Snana Yatra is a bathing festival celebrated on the Purnima of the Hindu month of Jyeshtha. It is an important festival of the Jagannath culture.
Devasnana Purnima is an indivisible piece of the widely acclaimed Rath Yatra Puri. This day, the full-moon day of the period of Jyestha, the divinities are washed by 108 pitchers of water. This is arranged close to the Sitala sanctuary situated in the Jagannath temple premises.
Devasnana Purnima or Snana Yatra is being regarded as one of the most pious celebrations.
