Shyama Puja, the second largest festival of Hindu community, will be celebrated across the country today amid festivity and religious fervor.

It is also called Deepabali or Diwali, the festival of lights.

Shyama Puja is celebrated on the night of Amavasya of the Bangla month of Kartik, reports BSS. 

At the night of the festival, members of the Hindu community lighten earthen lamps (Pradeep) at their houses and crematoriums in memory of their departed elderly persons.

In the capital Dhaka, the Shyama Puja will be celebrated at the Dhakeshwari National Temple, Ramna Temple, Ramkrishna Math and Mission, Siddheshwari Kali Temple, Sri Sri Baradeshwari Kalimata Temple under Sabujbagh police station, Mandi Radha Gobinda Jeo’s Thakur Temple at Banagram, Postogola crematorium, Biharilal Jeo’s Temple at Sutrapur, Shankharibazar, Tanti Bazaar and Bangla Bazaar.

Marking the festival, idols of the Goddess Kali have already been installed at the temples and pandals across the city.

According to Hindu mythology, the goddess Kali was born out of the brow of Goddess Durga during one of her battles with the evil forces.

During the battle, Kali was so much in a killing spree that she began destroying everything that came in her sight. To stop her, Lord Shiva threw himself under her feet. Shocked by this, Kali stuck out her tongue in astonishment and put an end to her rampage.

The main purpose of the puja is to seek the help of the goddess in destroying evil forces, both in the outside world and within human being.
