The Hindu festival of Durga Puja, also known as Durgotsava or Sharodotsava, is a yearly celebration that honours the Hindu goddess Durga and commemorates her victory over Mahishasur.

Over the years, Durga puja has become an inseparable part of Indian culture with innumerable people celebrating this festival in their own unique way while pertaining to tradition.

Hindu mythology holds that the goddess comes to her earthly abode at this time to bless her devotees. For the Bengali community, Durga Puja is extremely important.

To destroy Mahishasura, Goddess Druga appeared from the fusion of all the gods’ energies in heaven. She had ten arms, and on each of them she carried the most lethal weapon belonging to each God. All of Goddess Durga’s weapons are sanctified during this time.

Devotees dress in new garments, chant aartis, visit temples, hand out sweets, clean their homes, and some may even fast to express gratitude to the Goddess during this festival.
