List of Puja Accessories


Accessories are the things needed to perform the four day long Durga Puja. Incorporated from the "Panjika", the accessories differ on all four days. Kalparambho meaning the beginning of the puja is performed before the commencement of all pujas. Kalparambho and Mahasnan are common for all the four days of Durga Puja and thus require the same things to perform them. Items which are needed for the ritual worship of the Goddess Durga should be collected beforehand so that the ritual is performed smoothly. The list of essential accessories of Durga Puja are :
