Photo Album of Navarathri/Pooja Festival

In the eve of Navarathri, we would like to write a post about it. Whole India is celebrating Navarathri festival, but name and way of celebration is different. In Kerala and Tamilnadu, people celebrate this Navarathri as Pooja. 

Commonly people used to celebrate the festival for 10 days. But most of the people give importance for last two days. 9th day of Navarathri is Mahanavami. Here the people celebrate as Ayutha Pooja. We know the proverb “Work is workship”. So the people keep their tools, machines and other materials according to their job for Pooja. And they pray for prosperity of their life.

10th day of the festival is Vijayadasami. Since Saraswathy is the goddess of knowledge, people do Pooja for goddess Saraswathy, so it is called as Saraswathy Pooja. This day is for students. Students keep their books, study materials, musical instruments, etc for Pooja. Here they pray to God for their better knowledge.

This day is most suitable for start new activities in the life. So parents take their children to temples, churches and other cultural institutions to start their activities through the eminent personalities.

Above photos are taken from our home on the day of Pooja.

The following photos are from Attukal Bhagavathi Temple, Trivandrum on the eve of Navarathri/Pooja Festival

Very beautiful. As you rightly said, Saraswathi Pooja is important there. Ofcourse, Bomma Kolu is also kept during that period.
