Nabakalebara - Literary means the new-body. The new embodiment festival of Shree jagannath Mahaprabhu is the only propitiated God on this earth who use to periodically change off His Body. the concept of the Nabakalebara emerge from the philosophy of re-birth i.e. Body is mortal whereas the Soul is immortal which has been elucidated in the "Shreemad Bhagavat Gita"-the Hindu tenet.

              Nabakalebara is performed when there are two months of Asadha (according to lunar month) which usually come in a cycle of 12-19 years.

              These coins are being released by Government of India in memory of the Shree Jagannath Nabakalebara Festival held during the year 2015.
