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.
The celebration is taking place amid much enthusiasm, festivity and religious fervour.
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 Dhaka, Saraswati puja will be arranged at different places, including Jagannath Hall of 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.
