Durga Puja celebration in Cuttack is a glittering show with the goddess and her progeny as well as Mahisashura, the demon she is seen slaying, adorning gold and silver jewellery for which this millennium city is famous.
A unique aspect relating to Durga Puja in the city is the communal harmony it reflects.
The city is known for its silver tableaux, ‘Chandi Medha’ which is a major draw. The silver tableau of the Goddess has been made by both Hindu and Muslim artisans in the city.
