Durga Puja according to Greenwich Mean Time

The Puja timings, being based on the lunar month, often spread over to the next day or night. Sashthi is the day for the inauguration, though the main part of the Puja spreads over four days from the day of Saptami to the day of the Bijoya Dashami on which the immersion takes place. So it may not match, as is the case this year, with the days of the Calendar we follow.

Durga Puja calendar by Greenwich Mean Time

Durga Puja is the sacred five day festival of the Bengali Hindu community held in honour of Goddess Durga and to celebrate her annual homecoming. This year, the occassion is to be observed from 25th September (Panchami) to 30th September (Dashami). Scroll down and have a look at the Puja schedule for the year 2017 based on the GMT (Greenwich Mean Time). Sasthi is believed to be the day on which the Mother Goddess arrives on the earth with her children. Goddess Durga’s arrival on Boat and Goddess Durga’s departure on Horsh. Shubh Durgotsav!
