খুঁটি পুজো – Heralding the MahaPuja

Khuti Puja (খুঁটি পুজো ) is the day that marks the heralding of the Durga Puja or more specifically the beginning of the ‘Pandal/Kathamo’ making process.

During the Khuti Pujo the first bamboo for Durga Puja Mandap/Pandal is worshiped to pray for a smooth and grand start of the Maha Puja.

For the ‘Barowari’ Pujas the day also marks the beginning of making of the Kathamo or the wooden frame on which the clay idol will be built.
