In this holy morning, Mahalaya was celebrated across the state Tripura with a lot of pomp and gaiety.

A vast number of people from different parts of the state Tripura took a holy dip and performed worship to their departed ancestors on the occasion ‘Mahalaya’, this morning, however, due to COVID-19 pandemic this year social distancing had to be maintained.

Besides, special prayers and Poojas were also performed by the devotees at the temples here in Tripura.  Mahalaya also marks the end of the 'Pitri-paksha'. The traditional six day countdown to Mahasaptami started today. Goddess Durga starts her journey towards earth on the day of Mahalaya, the first day of Devi-Paksha.
