Popularly known as the Deva Snana Purnima, this festival takes place in the full moon day in the month of Jyestha. This – is the first occasion in the course of a year when the wooden images of the three principal deities of the Shree Jagannatha temple, are brought out of the sanctum sanctorum in a procession and placed on the Snana Vedi and are bathed with 108 pitchers of water. On this occasion Jagannatha and Balabhadra are dressed like Ganesa with the head of an elephant.
