Durga Puja Copenhagen – BenInDen

Durga Puja is an integral part of a ‘Bangali’s’ life. Today, with the vast number of Bengalis spread throughout the globe, Maa Durga has also crossed the seven seas to reach foreign shores.
The Durga Puja by the ‘Bengalis in Denmark’ (BeninDen) is one such Puja in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Adorned in her traditional garb, the Durga idol was sourced from Kumartuli in Kolkata, the holy grail of idol making so to speak. Pradip Rudra Pal, a well known clay scultor crafted this Durga idol. Organised over a period of 3 days from 16 Oct-18 Oct,2015, it included cultural programmes one the first couple of days.
