The Bengalis in the Erlangen/Nürnberg region has come together to organize the Durgapuja festival in autumn, every year. This is the only Durga Puja in the metropole region Nürnberg and is expected to provide a vibrant opportunity for the larger Indian community and extended to the German community to showcase its colorful cultural diversity and to participate, exchange and celebrate.
On this joyous occasion, on behalf of the Durgapuja organizing committee, we cordially invite you in the festival and welcome you to be part of this journey. We organize various cultural programs through out the year with a dedicated and passionate focus on organizing Durga Puja every year.
WHAT IS A DURGA PUJA?
Durga Puja, also referred to as Durgotsava or Sharadotsav, is an annual Hindu festival in South Asia that celebrates worshipping of the Hindu Goddess Durga. It marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the evil buffalo demon Mahishasura and hence, epitomizes the victory of Good over Evil. In Bengal, Durga is worshiped as Durgotinashini, the destroyer of evil and the protector of her devotees.
Durgapuja, ein alljährlich stattfindendes hinduistisches Fest in Südasien, ist die Verehrung (Puja) der Hindu-Göttin Durga, die laut indischer Mythologie in einem langen, erbitterten Kampf den bösen Büffel-Dämon Mahishasura besiegte und so die Götter vor ihrer Niederlage und Vertreibung aus dem Paradies bewahrte. Durga symbolisiert das Gute und sie wird verehrt als unsere Beschützerin vor Bösem.
We have one and only one vision which drives us entirely and that is to organize Durga Puja in Erlangen till eternity. We thrive to deliver the best of experience and cultural richness to all our believers, supporters and well-wishers.
WHAT WE DO
We participate in Inter-Cultutal festivals. We cook! We manage events! We do it all for a cause! We organize events which are fresh, never seen before and off course we try to bring out the warmth of Indian culture in its truest essence.
We are a small group of Bengalis from the Erlangen/Nürnberg region. We come together as a big family and we bring to you Durga Puja Franken. Our community members are mostly employed and integrated with the German framework.
