Maha Sashti

Sashti is the inception of the Durgotsab festival with bringing Maa Durga’s idol into the pandals. Sashti means sixth; it signifies the 6th day after the new moon in the month of Aashin. This time of year has the most beautiful and clear blue skies and cool breezes. Adding to the festival’s beauty, the picturesque Kans grass (kash phool) stands out to welcome Maa Durga like a pure white carpet.
