The famous Rath Yatra takes place during the annual Phagotsav i.e. Lakkhi Mela in which Khatu Shyamji is taken around the village in a chariot.

Baba travels from his haveli on a chariot drawn by blue horses as a royal ride to Khatu Nagri.

Date of Khatu Rath Yatra


Keep in mind that Baba Shyam goes on a city tour in the form of Rath Yatra to give darshan to the devotees only on the Ekadashi day of Shukla Paksha at the time of Lakkhi fair in the month of Phalgun.

There is only one day in the whole year when you can see Baba Shyam outside the temple also. Except this day, devotees have to go to the temple for Baba's darshan on all other days.

Why people touch the chariot in Khatu Rath Yatra?


In this Rath Yatra, thousands of devotees go dancing and singing, blowing gulal. During this, there is a competition among the devotees to touch the chariot once.


It is believed that by touching the chariot during the Rath Yatra one gets special blessings of Baba and all bad deeds are done.

Route of Khatu Rath Yatra


The Shyam Rath Yatra starts from the temple and reaches the temple again after passing through various routes.

The administration and the Shyam Mandir committee decide the route of the Rath Yatra every time with mutual consent. Mostly this journey starts from the temple and comes to the main market via the hospital square.

Khajana Lootna in Khatu Rath Yatra


During the Rath Yatra, the prasad of 56 bhog made in the temple is also distributed among the devotees. This is called looting the treasury.

In the Rath Yatra, there is a lot of competition to get this Prasad of Baba in the form of a treasure.

Keep in mind that before the Rath Yatra, 56 Bhogs are offered to Baba Shyam by the temple committee. 56 Bhog is prepared in the temple premises itself.

New utensils are bought every time for Bhog and after Bhog the old utensils are distributed among devotees and needy people.
