When Is Durga Visarjan In 2018?
Durga Visarjan Muhurat For New Delhi, India
The end of Durga Puja festival is marked by the Durga Visarjan. Just with the arrival of the day of Vijayadashmi the immersion (Visarjan) of the idol of Goddess Durga is done early in the morning. From many years, immersion (visarjan) is done early in the morning but if Shravan Nakshatra and Dashmi Tithi rest in the Apaharan Kaal, then this time is the most auspicious one for immersion (Visarjan). Most of the devotees break their fast only after the immersion (visarjan).
During the festival of Durga Puja, Sindoor Utsav is one of the unique tradition celebrated in West Bengal. On the day of Vijayadashami, the ritual of playing with vermilion (sindoor) is carried out before the Durga Visarjan. On this occasion, all the married women put vermilion to each other and wish each other. Sindoor Utsav is also called as Sindoor play.
