Baliyatra in Motion


Contributor and drone pilot Eureka Apta combined drone and ground camera footage to record a religious celebration in the city of Cuttack in eastern India.  The festival is called Bali Jatra, and it's held throughout the state of Odisha to commemorate the ancient Sadhaba mariners' trips to Bali and Java.  The mariners were part of a very old seafaring tradition in Odisha and were critical to the transmission of both the Buddhist and Hindu religions into the furthest reaches of Southeast Asia.
