Puja History of Adhyabari Durga Puja (আঢ্যবাড়ি দুর্গাপুজো)

The Durga Puja of Adhya Bari of Kamarpara is worshipped for the last 286 years. The puja was started by Badan Chandra Adhya. The Adhya family has seven houses in Chinsurah. The house is famous for the grandson of Badan Chandra – Jogindralal Adhya who happened to be the station master of Hooghly when the first train ran between Howrah to Hooghly way back on 15th August, 1854. Jogindralal is popularly known as Jadu master.

Following the tradition of other bonedi families, the kathamo puja is performed on the day of Rathayatra. Here puja starts the day after Mahalaya.

The rituals of Kumari puja and dhuno porano by the womenfolk are meticulously performed here on the days of Nabami and Astami respectively. Maa Durga is worshipped here following the Baisnab rituals.

An unique feature of this puja is that the family members follow strictly the vegetarian diet from Mahalaya till seeing the reflection of the goddess in water (ghat biswarjan) on Dasami. The families of the artisan preparing the idol and the priest are with this puja for generations. Here Maa Durga is worshipped as Shiva-Durga.

A close look at the middle of the chalchitra will reveal the patchitra of Mahisasuramardini. The idol is adorned with gold and silver ornaments. Lakshmi Puja which is traditionally held after Durga Puja is not performed here. Apart from Durga, Lord Kartick is also worshipped here for more than a century.
