The return journey of the three deities from the Gundicha Temple back to the main Shrine is commonly known as ‘Bahuda Yatra’. On their way back the deities stop at the ‘Mausi Maa Temple’ and accept an offering of ‘Poda Pitha’. Apart from this, many other small rituals take place during the event which provides an outlook into the Odia culture and traditions for the world to witness.
