Dandiya Raas in Navratri is a mesmerizing thing to watch as well as to participate in.


Dandiya Raas is performed in the honor of Goddess Durga. It is the dramatization of a mock fight between the Goddess and Mahishasura – the mighty demon-king.


Traditionally, Dandiya Raas is performed after aarti (ritual of worshipping the diety).
