The Navratri festival honours and celebrates Goddess Durga for defeating the demon Mahishasura. It is celebrated for 9 full days in almost every part of India. The festival chiefly celebrates the victory of good over evil wherein Devi Durga defeats and overpowers the buffalo demon in the form of Mahishasura. The festival is associated to the prominent battle that took place between Durga and demon Mahishasura and celebrates the victory of Good over Evil. These nine days are solely dedicated to Goddess Durga and her nine Avatars'. Each day is associated to an incarnation of the goddess. Navratri is celebrated with Golu, Bhajans, and Pujas along with prasadam distribution on all the nine days.
