What\'s a chariot called in Hindi?

The chariots were the elite arm of ancient Indian armies during the Vedic periods and Epic periods, i.e., 1500 to 600 BCE. These were frequently used in the ancient South Indian temples to celebrate an event called Rathotsava, and hence the chariot gets its name as Rath in Hindi. Only the best of these chariots could make it to the Rathotsava, and those that were no longer in the best shape had to be discarded in an open field as these could no longer carry the divine idols.
