Kullu Dussehra..

Greetings on Vijay Dashmi !!


Kullu Dussehra is a week-long festival celebrated in Kullu valley of Himachal Pradesh. This festival is one of the biggest traditional and cultural celebrations of India. Kullu Dussehra 2010 starts today on October 17th and will end on October 23rd. Kullu Dushara is a festival celebrated with a difference, as when Dussehra ends in other parts of India at that time the festival of Kullu Dussehra begins. This festival starts on Vijaya Dashami and continues for seven days. Here are some pics taken by me this evening as the festival starts !!
