The five day long celebration of Durga Puja ended in Bangladesh on Monday with the immersion of the idols in rivers, ponds and water bodies across the country. The Puja celebrations had started on the 22nd of this month.
 
This year many of the usual activities during the Puja like Kumari Puja, Shidur Khela, Dhunchi dance competition and immersion procession called ‘Shobhajatra’ were not held as certain restrictions were imposed by the government due to Corona pandemic in the country.
 
The process of immersion started in the afternoon in the capital city where the idols were immersed in Buriganga. Organisers were advised by the Mahanagar Puja celebration Committee to complete the process before 6 in the evening.
 
Durga Puja is the biggest festival of the Bangladeshi Hindus. It was celebrated with devotion and enthusiasm across the country despite the Corona pandemic. Puja was organised in Bangladesh in 30,223 mandaps which was less in number compared to last year's figure of 31,398. In Dhaka alone, Puja was held in 233 mandaps.
