Durga Puja, a major Hindu festival in West Bengal, typically falls in the month of October. The exact date of Durga Puja varies each year because it is based on the lunar calendar. The festival spans over four days, with the most significant days being Maha Sasthi, Maha Saptami, Maha Ashtami, Maha Nabami, and Vijaya Dashami. The festival generally begins on the sixth day (Sasthi) and ends on the tenth day (Vijaya Dashami).

The first Durga Puja in West Bengal can be traced back to the late 16th century when it was introduced by the landlord of Dinajpur, Raja Kangshanarayan. Since then, Durga Puja has evolved into a grand celebration, with elaborate decorations, artistic idols, cultural performances, and a strong sense of community involvement. It is celebrated with great enthusiasm and is an integral part of the cultural fabric of West Bengal.
