Kharchi Puja is one of the most important festivals of Tripura. Celebrated in the month of July, Kharchi Puja is a week long festival during which 14 gods are worshipped.
Kharchi is derived from ‘khya’ which means ‘earth’ and hence, the festival is also known as the worship of earth. The main celebration takes place at the premises of the Chaturdasha Devta temple in the capital city Agartala.
Kharchi Puja is a celebration spread over 7days where people come together to worship and offer prayers to mother earth for sustaining life of mankind with her rich natural resources.
