It is to be noted that according to the calendar, the chariot procession of Jagannath was held on the second day of the dry season of the month of Ashar. It is believed that every part of Jagannath's chariot is very important. Thirty-three crore gods and goddesses are sitting in three chariots. As a result, the feet of thirty-three crore gods and goddesses are touched just by touching the rope of the chariot. Also, according to popular belief, touching the rope of the chariot does not lead to rebirth. It is also thought that one can be free from all sins. If you can pull Jagannath's chariot, you will get the result of Ashwamedha Yajna. The newlyweds touch the ropes of the chariot so take the blessing of the Lord. Besides, according to the fans, nightmares do not come when the rope of this chariot is hit on the head. There is also relief from the disease.
