Durga Puja Pandal

The Durga Puja sweeps the neighborhoods of Varanasi every year and invites Banarasis to join in on the festivities late into the night for one week. The city becomes full of life as temporary temples, pandals, gather flocks of Hindus to admire their display of intricately adorned dieties. The festival celebrates when the Hindu goddess Durga was invited back home.
