Dussehra Festival is a major family friendly festival of India celebrating with great vibrancy and joy the Victory of Good over Evil. It has become a favourite festival worldwide. The festival which presents spiritual culture of India will be a feast for the senses. The event has something for everyone - Music, Dance, Kirtan, Meditation, Bonfire, plus more! At the festival's climax, an effigy of Ravana, who personifies evil will be set alight.

The burning of Ravana is symbolic both in the world and within out hearts.
