The annual Ratha Yatra festival in London, attended by thousands of Hindu's sees three huge chariots containing effigies of Lord Jagannath, his brother Balbhadra and sister Subhadra pulled by devotees from Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square. An effigy of Srila Prabhupada — founder of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness, widely known as the Hare Krishna Movement — is also reverentially placed on a chariot for the journey. Along the route music and dancing lends a joyous atmosphere. - RF
