Navaratri Pooja 2018 marked traditional celebrations at Ambalavattam Temple from 10 to 19 October. The ceremonies lasted nine nights and one day, from 10 to 19 October 2018.
Navratri celebrates the victory of Goddess Durga over Mahishasura, the buffalo-headed demon. She fought for nine days and nine nights before emerging victorious on the tenth day.
Navaratri dedicates three days each towards worshipping the divine forms of Durga, Lakshmi and Saraswati. The tenth day is Vijayadashami, the day of victory.
In Kerala, the days of Ashtami, Navami and Vijayadashami are celebrated as Saraswati Pooja when books are worshipped. The ninth day is also the day of Ayudha Pooja when you worship the tools of one’s livelihood.
