Durga Puja, also called Durgotsava and Navaratri, is an annual Hindu festival in the Indian subcontinent that reveres the goddess Durga. A multi-day festival that features elaborate temple and stage decorations (pandals), scripture recitation, performance arts, revelry and processions.
Since it is a cross culture and cross community festival, it is celebrated by people from all regions of the country and has been enthusiastically received by all the residents in PSN.
