Nabjauban Besha

(Asadha / June – July)

After the bathing in ceremony of Lord Jagannath and His Siblings, The Deities are considered to have taken ill. As such they are kept in AnasaraGhara (Anasara Room / Leisure Room) within the temple complex for treatment. They remain in seclusion for a period of 15 days. Then on the New Moon day of Asadh (June – July), they come out of their Leisure Room fresh and invigorated to give a darshan to their beloved devotees, putting on attractive robes. Since they attain a youthful and fresh look, the adomment is called the Naba Jauban Besha.
