Dayana Chori Ritual is celebrated  on  Chaitra  Sukla  Trayodasi  and Chaturdasi Tithis i.e. the 13th and 14th day of the bright fortnight of Chaitra (March-April). As per  the  tradition,  Jagannath  Mahaprabhu  had forcibly  collected  Dayana  leaves  from  the Nandana garden of Lord Indra and had worn them in his hands. This festival is observed in memory of the said incident. The representative deities like Lord Rama and Lord Krushna are taken in a procession to the celebrated garden of the  Jagannath  Ballabha  Matha,  where  the  deities pick up their dear Dayana leaves unnoticed by anybody  and  on  the  14th  day  the  leaves  are offered  to  the  deities.  This  is  also  known  as Damanaka  Chaturdasi.
