Vijaya Dashami
Durga Puja is the biggest festival of Hindus. After five days of worship, they celebrate it.

Today, Friday will end with the devotion of Goddess Durga all over the country.

Devotees will gather in the puja mandapa to celebrate Vijaya Dashami on the last day of the festival, recite mantras, give flowers to Goddess Durga (Puspanjali) and pray for blessings.

Mandapas across the country are decorated with beautiful idols. Vijaya Dashami is a special occasion to restore peace and harmony among the people.

This year, the festival is being celebrated in about 32,117 puja pandals across the country, including the capital.

In the capital, thousands of people will flock to Buriganga to watch the last episode of the Durga Devi Dedication Festival.

Devotees will bid farewell to the mother and her children Lakshmi, Saraswati, Karthik, and Ganesha with tears in their eyes, wishing Durga return next year by sacrificing the idol.

Meanwhile, strict security measures have been tightened to ensure a peaceful end to Durga Puja.

The five-day festival started on October 11 with the awakening of Goddess Durga.
