Durga Puja celebrations in Varanasi

Shakti, the saviour of good and destroyer of evil, is worshipped as eternal mother all over the country.

People from all parts of the country speaking different languages and dialects with their own traditions have settled here. One can see the beauty of regional traditions during the Shardiya Durga Puja.
