06 April (Saturday) - 14 April (Sunday)
Navratri is a 9-day Hindu festival dedicated to the supreme Goddess Durga. During Navaratri, each day is dedicated to an incarnation of Durga. Navarathri comes 5 times a year. One of them is Sharad Navratri, which is celebrated with great pomp and show by all Hindus. However, rest 4 has regional relevance. After Shardiya Navratri, Chaitra Navratri is celebrated quite significantly in some areas. Rest 3 are Gupt Navratris (Magh Gupt Navratri, Ashadha Gupt Navratri, & Paush Gupt Navratri). These are celebrated by very few people and are known for different occult practices. Among these 3 Gupta Navaratris, Paush Navratri is known to very few people.
