    About Kartik Yatra

    Every year during the auspicious month of Kartik, His Holiness Radhanath Swami Maharaj takes devotees from all over the world on a Yatra(A Spiritual Journey) to various holy places in India.

    Over the years, devotees have visited Vrindavan, Govardhan, Ayodhya, Jaipur, Sri Rangam, Tirupati, Mayapur, Dwarka, Udupi, Rameshwaram and many other places.The number of devotees participating in these yatras have increased manifold i.e from an humble twenty in 1986 to a magnificent 10000 in 2023.

    Kartik Yatras give devotees an opportunity to perform the devotional activity of shravanam (hearing) of hari-katha. Shravanam done in the association of devotees, in a holy dhama, is said to award one immense devotional merits.

    With thousands of devotees participating, these yatras give devotees a wonderful opportunity to hear hari-katha and chant the holy names with complete absorption in an environment free from one’s regular household and professional anxieties.

    This year, the Yatra is conducted at the Jagannath Puri Dham – The Land of Daru Brahma.

    The date of yatra: 16th Nov – 21st Nov.
    Accommodation Dates – 15th Aug to 25th Aug
    Yatra Registration Charges: ₹ 4350/- (+ ₹500 late fee)
    Accommodation charges will be based on your choice and selection.
