Navratri is one of the holiest Hindu festivals. Navratri is the festival of Goddess Durga who is the most powerful female god of Hindu mythology. Navratri is celebrated for nine nights during which people worship Goddess Durga and Her nine forms to seek Her blessings to remove of miseries of life . Goddess Durga blesses Her devotees with Her Love, protection, fearlessness, courage and confidence and many other divine blessings.

According to the Hindu calendar, Navratri starts at the first day of the bright fortnight of Ashwin. The nine days have great religious significance as Goddess Durga, the divine mother, killed demon Mahishasura during this period.

The festival is celebrated with true devotion and purity all over the India and also abroad. People from various sections of the society irrespective of caste and creed celebrate this festival by visiting temples and offering pujas at the Mother's feet. At many places special puja of Devi are also held by setting up the images/idols of Mother Durga in beautifully decorated pandals.
