Visited Temple during Navratri Festival

in GEMSlast month (edited)

Hello and Everyone

It's time for the Navaratri in India and this is a very holy time. Navratri is a festival where people do fasting and they do visit temples for worship. Some people visit temples every day which is good but it is not possible for me because any good temple is not near my house but still I managed to have one widget throughout the week. If somebody can manage to visit every day then I think it's very good and I'm happy that people can do this but this is not for me so I did one visit to the temple and it was a good time with my kids over there.

Many people might not know what this Navratri is so I have taken the definition from Google which is shared below and I hope that this will help you understand what this festival is all about. This festival is for the nine days where some people do the fasting for the entire 9 days and some differently.

Navratri is a Hindu festival that lasts nine days and honors the worship of Goddess Durga and her nine avatars. The word "Navratri" comes from the Sanskrit words "nav" which means nine, and "ratri" which means nights

I do it differently because I do the fasting on the first and last day and also on the 8th day. After all, this is what I like to do. Can't do fasting because it is difficult for me as my younger son is just one and a half and it is difficult to manage him for feed. We went there in the evening and it was midweek so there was not much crowd because on the weekend it's mostly crowded and I avoid visiting such places when it's crowded. My younger son was very happy to be there because he got the ground to play around and many other kids were also playing but I enjoyed whatever time had there to see him enjoying the moments.

He was playing all around and he also did a type of worship. It's good to see that kids are learning the culture from childhood and I want to make them like that when they do not forget their culture and that's how it should be in my opinion. I am someone who believes in God and never tries to do something wrong also believe in a simple life where I get enough time for my family and also some time for God who has created us. This temple is nice but I am visiting this for the first time and I like the experience overall because of the way things are managed and it was neat and clean.

I also clicked many photos which I'm sharing here and you can see a variety of gods which is in the same temple. I wouldn't say it's a big one but the temple is not small. Maybe I can think of going there again and again because it is not too far from my house and one of the best part is the management and this crowd in the temple which is what I like a lot.

Once again I wish you all a very happy Navratri and wish God fulfils all your dreams. As of now, the Navratri festival is over and this is celebrated twice a year. Once it is celebrated in April month and another one is celebrated in September so now this one is over and the countdown for another one in September has started.
