From Odhan Sasthi to Basanta Panchami in the months of Margasira and Pousha.

The month of Marghasira are the cooler parts of the year. Thus during the period from Margasira Sukla Sasthi tithi (the 6th day of the bright fortnight in Margasira) to Magha Sukla Panchami tithi (the 5th day of the bright fortnight in Magha i.e. Basanta Panchami), deities wear winter clothes. The entire body barring His face is covered with velvet clothes. shri Jagannath Mandir, Thyagraj Nagar, New Delhi.
