Today marks the final day of the Durga Utsav Festival organised for the first time this year by the Colombo Durgotsav Cultural Association.

MTV and MBC are the media sponsors of this event.

Durgotsav or Sharadotsav is an annual cultural festival in South Asia celebrating the triumph of Goddess Durga over Mahishasura. Goddess Durga has been worshiped by the Hindus to invoke supreme power, epitomising the triumph of all that is good over evil.

The final day of Durgotsav was marked on Sunday at the New Kathiresen Hall in Colombo 4. Following religious observances on Sunday morning, the statues of the gods were taken in procession and set afloat on the sea.

A cultural performance was also held at the New Kathiresen Hall in Colombo 4 on Saturday.
