Durga Puja, the biggest religious festival of the Hindu community, ends today with the immersion of the idols of Goddess Durga.

Devotees with tearful eyes will bid farewell to their mother deity and her children -- Lakshmi, Saraswati, Kartik and Ganesh -- through the immersion of their idols in the water, wishing Durga’s return next year.

The five-day festival began on October 1 with Maha Shasthi, Chondipath, incarnation of Goddess Durga and Adhibas at temples across the country amid festivity and religious fervour.

Maha Nabami Puja was celebrated on Tuesday.

This year, the biggest festival of the Hindu community, is being celebrated at 32,168 Puja Mandaps across the country, including 241 in the capital.
