The festival of Durga Puja has many names. It is known as Navratri, Dushera, Dassara, and Durga Pujo in different parts of India. It has great cultural importance as it signifies the victory of good over evil as well as stands as a symbol of woman power. The vibe of the festival is beautiful and one of the best times to plan your trips.

Here are a few places where you can visit to enjoy Navratri in India.


Kolkata’s Durga Pujo is iconic and stands as a synonym to the festival itself. Durga Puja is something that every Bengali waits for months and celebrates with grand fervour and enthusiasm. With decorative pandals and gorgeous idols, the vibe of the festival is unlike any event in India..


Navtratri in Gujarat is the time when people come together, dress up and enjoy endless sessions of Garba for hours. The colours and the vibes of the festival make the time simply great to explore the city that is also known for its heritage, food and history.


Mysore Dassara is very iconic and worth visiting as it is the part of the royal tradition. The last day of Navratri in India sees a grand procession with elephants, different performers from all around Karnataka and lighting around the city. The iconic Mysore Palace is itself decorated with beautiful lights and is a must visit. From Mysore, one can easily travel to Goa or Coorg in order to make their festival experience better.


Kullu Dushera is a grand celebration of all the gods from the villages of Kullu region. This 10 day festival is a great way to learn about the traditions and practices of the people of Kullu and how each village has its own identity. It is a beautiful event and one can also mix Dharamshala and Dalhousie during an extended vacation.
