Snana Purnima or Debasnana Purnima, also known as Snana Yatra is a festival of Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra, which began at Shree Jagannath Temple of Puri on Friday, June 5.
Instead of crowding the Bada Danda owing to the restrictions to check large congregations, millions of people across the globe are now glued to their television sets to witness the royal bath of the three deities – Lord Jagannath, Lord Balabhadra and Devi Subhadra – who were brought out of the sanctum sanctorum in a Pahandi (procession) by servitors on Friday morning and taken to the Snana Mandap (bathing altar), where 108 pitcher of aromatic water will be poured on them.
The Snana Yatra is a bathing festival celebrated on the Purnima (full moon day) of the Hindu month of Jyeshtha.It is an important festival for the Sanatana or Hindu dharma.

It is a belief among devotees of Lord Jagannath that if they make a pilgrimage to see the deity on this day, they would be cleansed of all of their sins. Hundreds of thousands of devotees visit the temple on the occasion. The Skanda Purana mentions that King Indradyumna arranged this ceremony for the first time when the idols of the deities were first installed.
Probably this is the first time in the history of Puri Srimandir, the Snana Purnima festival is being held without footfall of devotees due to lockdown imposed to contain spread of coronaviorus.
The Snana Purnima falls on the full moon day of Jyestha month ahead of world famous Rath Yatra of the Holy Trinity. During the Snana Purnima, Gods take the divine bath with 108 pitchers of aromatic and herbal water following which they fall sick. They recuperate from the illness during the next fortnight in a secret chamber called Anasara Ghara and reappear for Rath Yatra.

The Snana Purnima festival began with the Mangalarpan of the Holy Trinity which was conducted at around 1.25 am. Later, the rituals of Dori Lagi, the customary fitting of rope on the deities for their procession was conducted.
During the Debasnana Purnima, Lord Jagannath and his sibling deities take the divine bath with 108 pitchers of aromatic and herbal water. After this, the deities catch the fever and take fifteen days of solitary confinement called Anasara Ghara.
On the day of the Snana Yatra, the deities are bathed with 108 pots, of ritually purified water drawn from the northern well of the temple to the accompaniment of religious incantations. In the evening, at the conclusion of the bathing ritual, Jagannath and Balabhadra are dressed up in elephant headgear representing the God Ganesh. This form of the God is called the ‘Gajavesha’.
After the Snana Yatra the Gods are traditionally believed to fall ill and are kept in a sick room to recuperate in privacy under the care of the Raj Vaidya. During this period known as Anasara the Gods cannot be seen by devotees. At this time three pata chitra paintings are displayed for devotees to view instead It is said that with the Ayurvedic medication (‘pnachan’) administered by the Raj Vaidya the Gods recover in a fortnight and resume giving an audience to their devotees.
During the Anasara period devotees head to the Alarnatha Mandira in Bramhagiri in the belief that Jagannath manifests as Alarnatha during this period.
