Different Lord Jagannath besa – HD Photos of all 37 Besas

The Sanskrit term “besa” denotes adornment. The deities on the ‘Ratnavedi’ of Shree Jagannath Temple, Puri, dressed the traditional divine costumes from ‘Mangala Alati’ to ‘Ratri Pahuda’ everyday. The dresses are with cotton and silken fabrics, gold ornaments studded with valuable stones, flowers of all sorts, and other plants and herbs like as Tulasi, Dayana, Marua, and so on. Sandal paste, camphor, and occasionally expensive musk are being in everyday ritual and seasonal Festivals or Ceremonies.

Out of all beshas of lord Jagannath the “Suna Besa” are held several times during a year.
