Welcome to Durga Puja Celebrations, the biggest festival of the Bengali Hindu community of India.
Durgapuja creates world record every year in Kolkata, by creating maximum number of temporary structures called pandals across the city, to host the and worship the Mother Deity of Durga. The artistic excellence in each of the pandals is also commendable, with both unknown as well as world famous artists spending months to decorate and build each of the hundreds of pandals.
The revelry of the Bengalis celebrating the festival is electric, to say the least! Apart from whole day and whole night pandal hopping, all restaurants, clubs, eateries and bars remain full house, and people try to squeeze out every bit of fun they can, from the weeklong festival days.
For those Bengalees who are unable to visit Kolkata in festival time, do merry by organizing durga puja in their own place. This is the reason why there is a increasing number of puja being held in other cities of India, in the USA, Europe and Australia.
