Ratha yatra, the Festival of Chariot : In Singapore- Photo feature

Ratha yatra, the Festival of Chariot : Chariots of Shri Jagannath is celebrated every year at Puri, the temple town in Orissa, 
The festival being celebrated in Singapore as seen through my Lenses
This commemorates the annual journey of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balarama, and their sister Subhadra to their aunt' s temple,
A glimpse of Lord Jagannatha on the chariot is considered to be very auspicious and saints, poets and scriptures have repeatedly glorified the sanctity of this special festival.
In Singapore it was an occasion to watch so many devoutees gathering to attend the auspicious occasion of Rath yatra being performed at Yishun stadium, The Gathering of people is HUGE as visible in the Picture;

People gathered are Greeting,  Celebrating and Rejoicing the occasion  as can be seen in the other Photographs.
