DURGA (Shakti) – Goddess fulfils every wish

Hindu worship Durga as shakti or power as She is a combined power of all Gods in it. During Navratray period devotees throng to Durga temples all over India & also in different parts of the world where Durga temples are situated. Durga temples are also famous as mata ka mandir. These Durga temples are also known as Shakti peeth.  Durga puja is celebrated all over India to worship the Shakti. Hindu devotees keep fast during durga puja days and do not take any food made from cereals.  Hindu celebrate Durga puja two times in a year, each, at the time of change of seasons.
