Vijaya Dashami also known as Dusshera or Dashahara. It is one of the very important & fascinating festivals of India. It is celebrated in the lunar month of Ashwin on the tenth day of Ashwin, usually in September or October.

This festival is celebrated not only all across India but in some eastern countries like Java, Sumatra, Japan etc… Dashahara is Nepal’s national festival.

Word DASARA is derived from Sanskrit words “Dasha” & “hara” meaning removing the ten (10). In Sanskrit, ‘Vijaya’ means Victory and ‘Dashami‘ means 10th day. ‘Thus Vijaya Dashami’ means victory on the 10th day.
Dasara is also known as Navaratri, as in the first nine days the Divine Mother Goddess Durga is worshipped and invoked in different manifestations of her Shakti. The 10th day is in honor of Durga Devi.
