Durga Puja: West Bengal's Biggest Festival

The festival begins on the first day of the Hindu month of Ashvin (September–October).

On this day, the idols of Durga are brought out of the pandals (temporary temples) and placed in public areas for people to worship.

The idols are then decorated with flowers, fruits, and other offerings.

During the next nine days, there are many different events that take place as part of Durga Puja.

These include music and dance performances, food festivals, and fairs.

On the tenth day, which is known as Vijayadashami or Dashami, the idols of Durga are immersed in a river or a body of water.

During this puja season, visit Mandarmani and stay at our Mohana Beach Resort.
