Devotees engaged in kirttan at our Temple in Dum Dum Park, Kolkata, in front of Sri Sri Guru Gauranga Radha Madanamohanjiu. The temporary Durga Mandir of the local community is just visible in the background behind the devotees.

Looking across 'Tank Three' from the top of our Sangha's nat mandir; and a closer look at the Durga Temple.

The entrance to the Mandir...
...and Sri Durga Devi inside.

In the middle of the nearby Bangur Avenue, a temporary Temple made with bamboo and cloth; and the Deities within.

With the road closed, an appreciative audience listens to live traditional music.

Durga Devi in another temporary Temple further along Bangur Avenue.

Yet another Temple made for the occasion just off Bangur Avenue. Here a sound-and-light show takes place inside.
A gateway of moving lights welcomes visitors to Dum Dum Park. Traditional music is heard over loudspeakers everywhere, and there is much activity throughout the whole day and night.
