The festival signifying the triumph of good over evil is held on the tenth day after the nine day festival of Navratri. In Goa it commonly known as ‘Dasro’ in Konkani.  It is considered an auspicious day to undertake new ventures and buying new vehicles which are decked up with fresh marigold flowers. There are elaborate temple ceremonies in all of the state’s major temples with the deity taken out in procession.
