Gobinda Dwadasi – Govinda Dwadashi in Puri Jagannath Temple



Gobinda Dwadasi, or Govinda Dwadashi, is an auspicious day which falls on the 12th day during the waxing phase of the moon in Phalguna or Falgun month. In 2015, the date of Gobinda Dwadasi is March 12. Gobind Dwadasi is considered highly auspicious by Vishnu devotees. Gobinda Dwadasi is of great significance at the Puri Jagannath Temple. A rare combination of calculations as per Hindu astrology and almanac taking place provides the opportunity to take holy dip at the Mahodadhi Teerth on Puri coast.

Mahodadhi Tirth is a six kilometer long stretch of the Puri Seacoast from Chakra Tirth to Swargdwar.

It is expected that more than thousands of devotees will take a dip at Puri Jagannath Temple seacoast on the auspicious day of Gobinda Dwadasi Buda.
