|| About Navratri ||
The nine-day festival of Navratri in Hindu religion is dedicated to the nine manifestations of Goddess Durga. Navratri 2015 dates are from October 13 to October 22, 2015. Chaitra Navratri 2016 is from April 8 to April 15 as per Hindu calendar. The most important Navratri in a year is the Sharadiya Navratra which begins on the first day of the bright half of Ashvin or Ashwayuja (September-October) as per traditional Hindu calendar.
Apart from the Navratri in September – October, there are three other Navratris in a year. The most important among the three is the Chaitra Navratri or the Navaratri in March-April. This is also known as Vasant Navratri or Ram Navaratri.
The other two Navratris are Magh Navratri (January – February) and Ashad Navratri (June – July). These two Navratris are also known as Gupt Navratri and is mainly observed only in certain regions of North India.
Thus there are four important Navratris in a year in a traditional Hindu lunar calendar.
