Grand Road is just that. It's a wide long road that links the Jagannath Temple in the west with the Gundicha Temple in the east. It is where the town's main markets, shops and businesses are located and makes for a good walk (over 1km) between the two temples to see the daily comings and goings-on in Puri. Grand Road is used for the chariot festival of Rath Yatra when three huge 'cars' known as ratha are used to carry the diety's of Jagannath, Balbhadra and Subhadra. The 'cars' are pulled along by 4,000 temple employees which probably explains why Grand Road is so wide.
