Gaja Uddharana Besha


The Gaja Uddharana Besha is an adornment of the Lord which makes the replication of the event when Lord Vishnu saved his ardent devotee, an elephant from a vicious crocodile. The ritualistic besha is supposed to date back to 1575 and is carried out on the Purnami tithi of the Magha month, which comes on the full moon day of this month.
