The celebrations of Sharad (autumn) Navratri contain worshipping Goddess Durga and her 9 kinds. The fun-filled pageant is well known in several methods throughout the nation. Over the subsequent 9 days, devotees supply their prayers to Goddess Durga and observe fasts.
Also called Sharad Navratri, the event is believed to mark Goddess Durga’s victory over demon Mahishasura, signifying the victory of fine over evil.
The tenth day of Sharad Navratri is well known as Dussehra or Vijaya Dashami.
