SHIMLA: The Chaitra Navratri festival is being celebrated with full devotion and enthusiasm in Himachal Pradesh.

Navratri is dedicated to Goddess Durga. Authorities in Una, Bilaspur and Kangra Districts have made elaborate arrangements for pilgrims coming from different parts of the country. 

Special religious programmes are underway in the temples. 

This hill state has five historical Shaktipeeths of Godess Durga named Chintpurni, Naina Devi, Jawalamukhi, Bajreshwari Devi and Chamunda Devi. 

That’s why Himachal Pradesh is also known as Dev Bhoomi. 

Devotees, in large numbers are performing Puja in these Shaktipeeths of Godess Durga since early morning. 

All the temples have been decorated beautifully with colorful flowers. 

Elaborate security arrangements have been made in these temples.
