Dussehra

October

Kullu, Himachal Pradesh

Dussehra celebrates the victory of good over evil and is observed on the 10th day of the rising moon in the month of Ashvina. While the rest of the nation’s Hindu’s rejoice the defeat of the demon king Ravana by their beloved prince Ram, in the Kullu Valley it is also commemorated as the anniversary of situating the idol of Lord Raghunath in the 17th century, by the then King Jagat Singh as a mark of penance.

Lord Raghunath therefore became the ruling deity of the valley and even today he is honoured here during this festival with fairs, beautiful processional rathas (floats) and breathtaking performances of the Ramlila amidst pomp and fervour spanning a fortnight.
