Jakarta, the capital city of Indonesia celebrated its 487th anniversary on Sunday, 22 June 2014. On this occasion, the city hosted the Jakarnaval, a cultural parade from the National Monument to the Central Business District of Jakarta. 

Hare Krishna devotees took this opportunity to organize their third annual Ratha-Yatra festival, displaying the vibrant faces of Jagannatha (Krishna), His brother Baladeva and His sister Subhadra Devi. Attendees took note of them, especially the governor, who received the Bhagavad-gita As It Is in Bahasa Indonesian.
