Sakambari festival in Kanaka Durga Temple

The yearly Sakambari festival being held in Kanaka Durga Temple has started. Heavy rain has spoiled the first day of the festival yesterday.

The temple authorities have made arrangements in this regard but the response for the festival has been poor due to the ongoing rains in our city. This festival is held for three days during which goddess Kanaka Durga will be transformed into Sakambari Devi.

The temple has been celebrating this festival during the previous 5 years. Following the previous trend, the goddess has been decorated with vegetables & flowers. Vegetable like beera kaaya, donda kaaya & bringals have been used for the decoration.
