Durga led a battle against Mahishasur and it lasted for nine days and nine nights. Durga killed Mahishasur on the tenth day. Therefore, different manifestations of goddess Durga are worshiped during the nine day long Navratri festival each year wherein the tenth day is dedicated to Durga as Vijaydashmi. The feminine power is worshiped and celebrated during the festival of Navratri.



Navratri celebration culminates with Dussehra on the tenth day, when the idol of goddess Durga is immersed in a river or a lake, reported India.com. People celebrate the festival in different ways across the country. In North India, various colorful fairs are organised. Plays based on the story of Ramayan, which is known as Ramleela are performed.
