Bhadrak Kali Puja- 2016

At first wish you all Happy Diwali. In the Diwali festival, Goddess Kali is being worshiped in different places. First time Diwali was celebrated by the people of Ajodhya to celebrate the joy of home returning of Lord Rama. In the festival of Diwali Goddess Kali is being worshiped in West Bengal, Odisha, Bihar, Assam and Bangladesh. But the other states of India worshiped Goddess Laxmi in the Diwali.

Kali Puja at Bhadrak is famous in Odisha. In this year there are 7 pandals at Charampa and several pandals inside the town. One of the oldest Shakti Pitha Badrakli Tempel become festive in this festival. At Bhadrakali Temple, the Jagnya was held for 7 days. Near new bus stand, Bhadrak the temple of Maa Dakshineswar Kali also become festive for 7 days.

Previously the Puja lasts for 7 days, but this year it will going for 9 days. In between these 9 days of Kali Puja, several Jatra Parties came and held the Jatra. In this year the Jatra Parties named "Tulasi Gananatya", "The Great Eastern Apera" and "Jatra Indra Bhubana" came and held Jatra at different places nearer to Charampa Kali.

At the time of Kalipuja at Charampa, thousands of shopkeepers came and spread their business among the city. Every single thing, people needs may available there. Things like daily use materials, show materials and the others which required to our day to day life are available in those places.

I had visited all the pandals at Charampa. There are seven pandals at Charampa. Here some of the photos I post from Charampa Kali.

There are thousands of shops which contains every daily needed things for day to day life. To visit the Puja Medhas and the shops, it may take around 7 to 8 hours. For the entertainment purpose more number of Dolis came in different style for the elders as well as for the children. More than Lakhs of people came to this fair. I've captured some photographs of the shops.

These are the photographs of Dolis at Old Bus Stand, Charampa. Near RCBL High School, Pathara Kali there were many dolis like this with other styles. 

(They bring the stones form the hills and make them useful items for our daily life and sold us in lower price also.)

(Mathura Cake, Now-a-days, these are most famous item in every fair. There must be a stall of Mathura Cake.)

(These people made the iron material at their home and these are more strong than the things available in the normal market made by branded companies.)

(These are the wooden materials made by hand and available in normal price.)

These are the photograph of some of the shops from which people can find all their daily needs.

In Bhadrak town, there are more Kali Puja Medha from which I able to capture only one medha at Salndi, Bypass.
