Balijatra (Boita Bandana) literally means A Voyage to Bali. It is the Asia’s largest
open trade fair. This festival is held in Odisha (a state in eastern India), in the city of
Cuttack at Gadagadia Ghata of the Mahanadi river, to mark the day when ancient
Sadhabas (Odia mariners) were travelled to different Islands with their wooden boats
for the purpose of business. They also travel to the distant lands of Bali, as well as Java
(at the time of the voyage known as “Yawadvipa”), Sumatra, Borneo (all in Indonesia),
and Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon) for trade and cultural expansion. To commemorate
this, the festival is celebrated every year from the day of Kartika Purnima (full moon
day of the month of Kartika) according to Odia Calendar.
