Zamindars and aristocratic families of the state have long been known to celebrate this festival in their own unique ways, thus giving birth to the concept of Bonedi Barir Puja.
Besides worshipping the goddess, these rich families have always shown the importance of preserving the culture and tradition in the finest way. They have always engaged in Durga puja celebrations in such intense way that the festivities have always matched the opulence and charm of the common form of financed ‘Barowari’ pujos.
