Travel to India to learn about the invincible Durga. Her strength and regal beauty are celebrated by Hindus each fall.
Devi, an important part of the Hindu religion, is the invincible Durga. Pictured astride a big cat, she has many arms that illustrate her different strengthens and attributes. Often described as beautiful and deadly, Durga is credited with saving the universe from Asura and thus symbolizes victory over demons.
Throughout India, Durga is honored during the fall festival of Durga Puja. A long series of rituals is performed every day of the celebration, many related to the river Ganga. Study depictions of Durga to see how she is portrayed and learn more about Hinduism.
