Hindu chariot procession

Members of Wilton Hindu Mandir celebrated their chariot festival, known as Ratha Yatra, on July 14. Statues of gods and goddesses were dressed in bright silk attire and paraded in a chariot with hundreds of devotees marching along. The procession along Westport Road lasted about 90 minutes. A feast of Indian foods was served and dances of each region of India were performed at the temple as part of the festivities. — J.C. Martin photo
