Bali Yatra

SAWAN MELA

Kartik Purnima is the day when the famous Baliyatra (voyage to Bali) is celebrated. Ancient Orissa had a glorious maritime tradition in which merchants from Kalinga sailed to distant lands like Java, Sumatra, Indonesia and Srilanka. The merchants, known as Sadhabas, were said to have set out on their voyages after a ritual worship and offerings and prayers by their womenfolk for their safe journey. Therefore, for the Oriyas, this day is a nostalgic remembrance of their seafaring ancestors. To recapitulate this ancient tradition, most port towns observe the elaborate Boita Bandana (worship of boats) ceremony. Invariably fairs and exhibitions are also a part of these celebrations. The most colorful and grand fair is of course held in the silver city of Cuttack. Traders from all over the State flock to Cuttack to participate in the Baliyatra held near the ancient Barabati Fort. This 7 - 9 day event has now become a largest trade fair in Orissa.
