Further to the previous post, here are some pictures taken at this year's Rathayatra festival.

A devotee prostrates herself before the chariot.

A woman moves amongst the crowd painting the tilaka on worshippers' foreheads -- shaped like a tuning fork, it represents the footprint of Krishna.

An elderly woman makes sure she has a prime place for when the time comes for worshippers to draw the huge chariot forward.

The chariot is pulled along. A devotee shelters Krishna from the sun while a woman showers holy water onto the crowd.
