In the mid afternoon, His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree, sants, and all the disciples gathered at the Law Garden in the city of Ahmedabad where the nagaryatra was to commence. A helicopter showered the gathered crowd with fresh flower petals to mark the start of the procession.
The nagaryatra consisted of eight magnificently decorated chariots, the massed Pipe Bands of Shree Swaminarayan Gadi Sansthan from Bolton, London, Nairobi and USA, seven dancing troupes and tens of thousands of disciples from all around the globe. Also walking the route were two “Masaai” warriors and dancers with gigantic carnival costumes.
The seven kilometre route wound it way through the centre of Ahmedbad; starting at the Law Gardens, along CG Street, past Gujarat College, through Paladi Char Rasta, past the Town Hall and concluded at Ellis Bridge.
