Ansar

Bhagwan Jagannath, known for his human nature, falls ill like any ordinary human being and is also treated. Every year on Jyeshtha Purnima, Bhagwan Jagannath, Bhagwan Balabhadra, Goddess Subhadra and Sudarshan ji are bathed with water of one hundred and eight pots and then adorned in the guise of Gajanan. This festival is called Devasnana Purnima and it is believed that after bathing with so much water, all the four Gods get fever. They are then treated by royal doctors for the next fifteen days. For those fifteen days, the deities are served alone in a secret room and the darshan of all gods are closed for the common devotees. This time is called Ansar.

After ayurvedic treatment, when all the four Bhagwan come out after recovering, then like a king, the court of the God is held, where the eager devotees are able to see them. This day is called Navayovan Darshan. The world famous Rath Yatra of God is organized only two days after Navayovan.
