Chaitra Navratri

Chaitra Navratri represents fertility and renewal as worshipers believe that Maa Durga visits from heaven on this day. It ends with Ram Navami, birth of Lord Rama.

Sharad Navratri

Sharad Navratri occurs during Ashwin Masa, falling in September or October. While Chaitra Navratri symbolises renewal, Sharad represents the victory of Maa Durga over evil.
