Suna Besha 2017:
As the Trinity’s Bahuda Yatra was completed with devotional fervor on Monday, the Shree Jagannath Temple Administration is all set to conduct the Suna Besha of deities today.
The divine Lords will be dressed with heavy costumes made up of gold and the Suna Besha darshan will begin from 6 pm onwards.
Preparations have been made by the administration in view of the lakhs of devotees that are expected to throng to the Shrikhetra for getting a glimpse of the Trinity siblings.
Elaborate security arrangements have been put in place to ensure smooth conduct of the ritual by installation of CCTVs and undertaking a 3-tier security system for smooth management of the crowd and traffic management.
Suna Bhesha, also known as Raja or Rajadhiraja bhesha or Raja Bhesha, is an event when the Lord Jagannath and other deities Balabhadra, and Goddess Subhadra are adorned with gold jewelry.The name Suna Bhesha is derived from two words, ‘Suna‘ meaning “gold” and ‘Bhesha‘ meaning “costume“.
