Vijaya Dasami is known as one of the most vibrant and enticing occasion of Andhra Pradesh. The pious day of Vijaya Dasami symbolizes the victory of Lord Rama over the King of demons - Ravana. Some of the traditional fables also put forth the majestic triumph of Goddess Durga over the Asura on this day.

Connoting the tenth day of the holy war between Ram and Ravana, Vijaya Dasami is celebrated as the win of good spirits over the evil ones. Being one of the major celebration events of Andhra Pradesh, the festival is also enjoyed in all other parts of India with equal fervor.

With the beginning of the festival day, all the devout followers of Hindu religion flock to the several mandaps and pandals where the idol of the Goddess Durga is established. With the chanting of mantras, the priest offers sweets, flowers and incense sticks to the goddess. Prasadam and bhog is distributed among the devotees after the puja ceremony gets over.

From children to adults all engross themselves in the gaiety of the festival. While kids put their books in the feet of Saraswati who is known be the goddess of knowledge, craftsmen and laborers offer their instruments to the Goddess Durga for more prosperity and improvement in life. Also called as Dusshera, Vijaya Dasami is celebrated in others states of India with the burning of idols of Ravana.

Although Vijaya Dasami is a festival of Hindu people, yet people of other religions too participate in the occasion with as much enthusiasm and vigor as the followers of Goddess Durga.
