The week-long Dussehra celebrations began in Kullu on Sunday in a restricted manner. For the first time in 400 years, the festival is being celebrated in the presence of just seven prominent deities as opposed to 240 diets that are present usually.
To kickstart celebrations, Lord Raghunath’s 'rath yatra' was held. The procession saw a maximum of 200 people.
No cultural shows or commercial activities will be held in Dhalpur for the 2020 edition of the festival.
Kullu Dussehra concludes on the 31st of October.
