Welcome to

Leeds Durgapuja and Diwali Association

Leeds Durgapuja & Diwali Association means more to us than just a religious festival – It is a time for families to reunite and an ideal platform for our children to know their own cultural heritage.
This group is a joyful union of all who want to celebrate “Sharodotsab” , the Hindu festivity of Durga Puja, Lakshmi Puja, Kali Puja and Saraswati Puja. An alliance of people from various walks of life amongst the Hindu community of West Yorkshire region.

Durga puja

Durga Puja is an annual Hindu Bengali festival also called Durgotsav. Durga Puja marks the battle of Goddess Maa Durga with the shape-shifting, deceptive and powerful buffalo demon Mahishasura, and her emerging victorious. Thus, the festival epitomises the victory of good over evil, but it also is in part a harvest festival that marks the Goddess as the motherly power behind all of life and creation…..
