Sand artist Subal Moharana makes world's smallest chariot of Lord Jagannath, applies for Guinness Book of World Records

Eminent sand artist Subal Moharana of Bhubaneswar, ahead of the chariot festival in Puri, has made the smallest chariot of Lord Jagannath.

The height of the chariot is 2.3 mm and its width is 1.9 mm.

The chariot has been made using wooden pieces, clothes and fabric colours.

It is also decorated with two parrots, dadhinauti and patitapaban flag like the original one.

Speaking to ANI Subal Moharana said, "It took nearly 15 hours and 20 minutes to complete all three pieces.

Last time, a man had made the chariot of height 2.5; therefore I thought that I will make one inch smaller to that.

There is no chariot smaller than this one." Subal Moharana has applied for Guinness Book of World Records with proof and witnesses.

This year Puri Rath Yatra is likely to be held on June 23 without the participation of devotees to prevent spreading of coronavirus which has made Moharana design this exceptional piece of art work.
