Durga Puja

Durga Puja is India’s most religious and contemplated festival, and it celebrates the victory of Maa Durga over the demon Mahisasura. We welcome Goddess Durga from her heavenly home with her children on Earth during the festivities.

Huge pandals to worship the Goddess are erected worldwide. From Shashti (6h day), beautiful-decorated pandals are opened for visitors. Vijayadashmi (the 10th day) is regarded as Bisharjan day. We bid Maa Durga goodbye by immersing her idol in Ganga.  

Durga Puja is even called Durgotsava. It’s an annual ten days Hindu festival in India, and the celebration happens in late September or early October. The countdown to Durga Puja begins on Mahalaya and ends with a grand procession called Visarjan.

Durga Puja and Bengali

Celebration of Durga Puja is prevalent in and outside India. But nothing can match the grandeur of Kolkata. For us Bengalis, Durga puja is not just a puja; it’s an emotion, and this puja reflects our genuine emotion & devotion toward Maa Durga. 

Durga Puja is the most famous festival in Bengal. Every street in West Bengal is decorated with lights. Huge pandals are erected to welcome the Goddess, and many pandals are a replica of famous places from all over the world. 

Kolkata’s Durga Puja was accorded the title “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO and entered into the “Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity” representative index.

Starting of the Durga Puja celebration in Bengal dates back to history from the times of British Zamindars. At first, Durga Puja was celebrated in vast mansions of aristocratic families, with mantras and elaborate rituals.

But with time, theme puja pandals are taking over traditional ones on the open ground. Clubs compete and erect big-budget pandals to win awards like “best idol” & “best pandal.”
