Durga

Searching for the industrial areas along the Hooghly River in Kolkata, we found the rests of Durga idols inmersed in the water...
The 4 day Durga Puja is the biggest annual festival in Bengal and other parts of Eastern India.
In Hinduism, Durga is a form of Devi, the supreme goddess, also identified with Parvati.
Durga is depicted as a warrior woman riding a lion or a tiger with multiple hands carrying weapons and assuming muddras, or symbolic hand gestures. This form of the Goddess is the embodiment of feminine and creative energy (Shakti).
