The divine nights of Navratri are all about exploring the colourful mayhem of Indian culture and the finesse of Indian traditions. During this time period, the devotees throughout the country worship the goddess in her different roopas (forms).
With Navratri, the whole country experiences psychedelic shots of spiritual calmness and reverence. From the most remote cities to the big metropolitan areas, the fever of devotion doesn’t seem to slow down at all.
Keeping this in mind and resonating with the ongoing festive spirit, we at Adotrip, have come up with the top 10 Durga Puja celebrations which are commemorated in different parts of India.
Note: It is to be noted that, due to the pandemic, Durga Puja celebrations will be curtailed this year. However, people are allowed to celebrate the festival with all the social distancing precautions in place. Thus, this year, we won’t get to see any elaborate themes or decorations.
Kolkata experiences grand celebrations of Durga Puja. So if you want to revel in the taste of Indian culture and heritage, then West Bengal in Kolkata would be the right place to visit and enjoy the colourful festivities. All over the city, one can see several amazingly decorated pandals enshrined with the beautiful idols of Lord Kartikeya, Goddess Durga, Goddess Saraswati, Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha.
Witnessing the rituals here like Ashtami Pushpanjali, Mahalaya, and other contests along with the carnival is something worth waiting for.
