Makar Cahurashi Besha

Makar Cahurashi Besha

On the Makara Sankranti day, Jagannath Mahaprabhu wears Makara-chula (a sort of head-gear). The previous day, the rice is consecrated (adhibasa) and on the festive day, coconut, clarified butter and different spices are mixed with the said rice to prepare a dish known as Makara chaula. This food is offered to the deities as bhoga. This Makara chaula is taken around the Temple in a procession, which is called Makara bedha.
