Varanasi – Durga Puja

Varanasi is a place where there are more festivals than the days, I have heard for every 7 days, there are 9 days of festivals, there are many festivals, small and large. There are some you miss, because you didn’t know, some are for a certain sect only, some you cann’t miss because there are so important, everyone is involved and talking about them.

Here I have taken pictures of the Durga Puja in worship of the Goddess Durga.

 These colourful idols are everywhere, small and large. The final part of the Puja is to place the model of the Goddess Durga in the river Ganges.
