Berhampur: A youth from Odisha’s Ganjam entered India Book of Records for building the smallest chariot of Lord Jagannath.
Satya Moharana, currently residing in Berhampur, constructed the smallest Nandighosha chariot, which is only 1.4 inch high. The width of the chariot is only 1.3 inch.
The chariot has 16 wheels, a sarathi (driver) and the patitapaban bana (holy flag). Besides, four horses and two ropes have been attached to the chariot. The construction looks complete with having the idol of Lord Jagannath inside it.
The chariot was built on the occasion of Bahuda Jatra of Lord Jagannath this year.
Earlier, Satya was featured in World Book of Records for building the smallest chariot, which was only 4.5 inch high. Again, he achieved the world record by constructing a 2.5 inch high Nandighosha chariot on an occasion of Ratha Jatra this year.
