Saraswati Puja, worshiping the goddess of knowledge, wisdom and culture and one of the main religious festivals of the Hindu community, is being celebrated across the country on Sunday amid much enthusiasm, festivity and religious fervor.
The Puja is celebrated every year on the fifth day of the bright fortnight of the month of Magh, as Goddess Saraswati was born on this day.
The day is called ’Vasant Panchami’.
As Saraswati is considered as the Goddess of wisdom and knowledge, Hindu devotees, especially students, celebrate the Puja in different educational institutions and temples.
In the capital, Saraswati puja will be arranged at different places, including Jagannath Hall on the Dhaka University campus and Ramkrishna Mission, Siddheswari temple, Shakhari Bazar, Tanti Bazar, Banani, Dhaka College, Eden Girls College, Buet, Ramna Kali Mandir and others.
