Bangalore Durga Puja Locations 2007

Last year I had written up a list of Durga Puja locations on my main blog. I was pleasantly surprised the other day to see the same content in a forwarded email. So if some people actually read the blog, why not make it easier for people to find the information... So here is my attempt at updating the information and making it easier to locate.

Original List:

2007 Additions:
1) Adjacent to Uttam Sagar restaurant at Kullappa Circle, Kamanhalli.
2) Airforce campus, Jalahalli.
3) Foodworld on Sanjaynagar Main Road.

Will write more details of each puja as I visit them and take snaps on my trusty k800i

You mention the Kamanahalli puja near Uttam Sagar restaurant -- that's not Kullappa Circle. Its the Banaswadi Circle.

Maa is the force that is protecting the fort and when a fort is well protected, enemies cannot easily approach. so Always visit the holy place of Maa Durga

The Story of Mahisasura Mardini

The story element speaks of the increasing cruelty of the demon king Mahisasura against the gods. Unable to tolerate his tyranny the gods plead with Vishnu to annihilate the demon. The Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswara (Shiva) come together to create a powerful female form with ten arms - Goddess Durga or 'Mahamaya', the Mother of the Universe who embodies the primeval source of all power.

The gods then bestow upon this Supreme creation their individual blessings and weapons. Armed like a warrior, the goddess rides a lion to battle with the Mahisasura. After a fierce combat the 'Durgatinashini' is able to slay the 'Asura' king with her trident. Heaven and earth rejoice at her victory. Finally, the mantra narration ends with the refrain of mankind's supplication before this Supreme Power:
