13 Jul Indian Cultural Encounter – Canary Islands ~ Ratha Yatra 2018
The Municipal Patronages of Tourism and Culture of the City Council of Arona encourage them to attend the ninth edition of the Ratha Yatra 2018.
This event has its origin in the annual processions known in India with the name of Ratha-Yatra or "festival of floats", whose celebration is deeply rooted throughout India for centuries and since 1967 is celebrated in cities most important in the West including Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, Moscow, London, Paris, Zurique, Calcutta, Sydney, etc.
In all the commemorations of Ratha-Yatra in the different parts of the world, the people present in the festival witness a great variety of cultural events and exhibitions. The presentations include plays, music and dance.
Many rulers of the great cities of the world, in which the Ratha-Yatra festivals are held, have attended and given speeches in favor of the Ratha-Yatra by virtue of their important cultural contribution to a world of such variety of races and creeds. This festival brings great value and cultural interest to Arona, as well as promoting plurality, respect and tolerance among fellow citizens.
Together with Madrid and Barcelona, the Ratha Yatra of Playa de las Américas is one of the most important of those held in our country. Yoga, gastronomy and art of India are mixed with the great spirituality of this celebration that culminates with the Procession of the Divinities. Travel to the Asian country without leaving the island.
