Ravidas Gate sits at the intersection of Nagwa and BHU road in the Lanka neighborhood. Ravidas Gate receives almost all the traffic traveling through the busy Lanka neighborhood and overlooks the bustling traffic circle. At the side of Ravidas, a temporary temple or pandal is erected for the Durga Puja Festival. Visitors visit the Ravidas Gate pandal to view a depiction of the goddess Durga slaying the demon king Ravana. On this night eulogies of the demon Ravana will be immolated and paraded. People flood the streets to observe and participate in the popular burning of Ravana and traffic slows to an impasse in front of Ravidas Gate. The festivities will continue through the following night as the depictions of the gods, goddesses, and demons from throughout Varanasi are dumped in the Ganga. Each neighborhood sponsors its own pandal during the Durga Puja Festival. Pandals large and small, humble and elaborate are scattered throughout Banaras. Festival goers range from families with small children to zealous young adults. During this week school children also have vacation from school.
