Navratri marks the beginning of the season of festivals in India as people immerse themselves in performing Durga Puja during the nine day long celebratory trail of Indian traditions, customs, religious practice and offering prayers to 9 different avatars of Maa Durga. This is has its own significance as this day is marked as the victory of the goddess Durga over the demon Mahishasura. The eighth day of Navaratri is celebrated as the most auspicious one which is followed by prayers and fasts.

Also on this day, a special Kalaratri worship is held at midnight at the Dashain Ghar of Hanumandhoka in the capital city.

The name Maha Gauri literally means extremely white. Temples across the nation are decorated with attractive display of colour, lighting, and other stuff. She is depicted wearing white coloured clothes only because of that Devi Mahagauri is also known as Shwetambardhara. The nine incarnations or avatars of Goddess Durga are worshipped during Mahashtami Puja. She carries Trishul in one right hand and keeps the second right hand in Abhaya Mudra. Devotees perform different Aartis (Prayer to please goddess Durga to shower her blessings on them) in front of goddess Durga idols. Individuals who worship the Maa Mahagauri are believed to get rid of all the sufferings in life. Devotees must offer night-blooming jasmine to Devi Mahagauri and chant this mantra: ॐ देवी महागौर्यै नमः॥ Om Devi Mahagauryai Namah.
