Navratri is specially dedicated to the females, to pray for strength, valour and courage so that they can overcome material objects in life and most importantly seek the spiritual path of devotion.
- Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the Navratri festival this year. Although we are not in a lockdown, there are still high number of cases on a daily basis therefore we cannot risk holding such an event on large scale, putting the public at risk. While we know this is disappointing, we hope you can understand the steps we’re taking to help keep all attendees, volunteers and organisers safe.Stay safe and hope to see you next year.
Health and Safety Notice
If you are attending the temple for darshan we kindly request you to wear face covering whilst inside the temple.
Navratri starts on Aso Sud Padvo. It lasts for 9 days which are meant for the worship of Shaktimaa (Parvati Devi). Tired from the harassment from Demon Mahishasoor, the Devtas requested Bhrahma, Vishnu and Shivji (Tridevs) to help them. Shaktimaa appeared from the Tridevs anger and fought with the demon continuously for 9 days. The demon was killed which signified the victory of Divine over the Evil and therefore we celebrate these 9 days by singing Mataji’s devotional songs with musical instruments.
