Kali Puja

kp_1920-1590

Kali Puja (also known as Shyama Puja or Dipanwita Kali Puja) is perhaps the second biggest socio-cultural festival for Bengalis across India that brings all families, friends and acquaintances together. A little over two weeks after Durga Puja, it’s time for Kali Puja, especially in Bengal, Odisha, Tripura and Assam. The legends say Kali Puja was first performed in Bengal by Raja Krishnachandra (king of Nabadwip (West Bengal) in the 18th century).

Kali Puja is celebrated on the new moon day of the month of Kartika. Kali is also known as Chamunda Devi, Chandi, and Kalratri. worshipers honor goddess Kali in their homes in the form of clay sculptures and in pandals (temporary shrines or open pavilions). She is worshipped at night with Tantric rites and mantras.

We at VBA celebrate Kali Puja every year with high enthusiasm and dedication.
