Guwahati: Renowned sand artist Sudarsan Pattnaik built an 8-foot-tall and 15-foot-long sand sculpture of Lord Jagannath to ring in the new year in 2023 at Puri beach in Odisha.

Using 10 tonnes of sand, Pattnaik sculpted the deities of Lord Jagannath, Balabhadra, and Goddess Subhadra. He added flowers and the message “Jai Jagannath” to the sculpture.

“We welcome the new year through our sand art and pray to Lord Jagannath for peace and prosperity,” said Pattnaik.

Greeting all people on the occasion, Pattnaik took to twitter and said, “Jai Jagannath… A very Happy New Year! May Mahaprabhu Jagannath bless all of us.”
