Navaratri

October

Ahmedabad, Gujarat

Nine uninterrupted nights of dancing to the garba, with dandiyas, and gyrating to the beats of traditional music and latest Bollywood chartbusters, is what signifies Navratri today. But this festival is wider than just dressing up in indigenously crafted, vibrant, bejewelled outfits and dancing the night away. The pivotal point is to celebrate the victory of good over evil.

Prayers are offered to Goddess Amba and her avatars. Lord Rama is worshipped and scenes from his life are depicted through fantastic plays. All this with a bit of music, spectacular lighting and scrumptious food, makes it a dazzling affair. No city in India can match up to the celebrations of Navratri in Gujarat.
