Varanasi: In Shardia Navratri, the festival of Durga Puja is also celebrated with great fanfare along with Shakti Puja. From Bengal to Baba Vishwanath’s city of Benares, its special image is visible. These days the glow of this festival is being seen in Banaras which is known as Mini Bengal. Beautiful venues are attracting people. Somewhere the shape of the Ram temple of Ayodhya is seen, and somewhere else a glimpse of the Pashupatinath temple of Nepal is seen. At every such pandal, devotees flock to see the adishakti Maa Durga.
