Significance of Tala Navmi
Tala Navmi is a festival dedicated to Goddess Durga and on this day special prayers are offered to appease the deity.

The festival also marks the beginning of the Durga puja festival in Eastern India, which is celebrated only a month after this day.
The festival is considered auspicious for seeking blessings for the fulfillment of desires and wishes from Goddess Durga. It is quite common for Sadhus to perform yajna and homas on this day. Many yatras and fairs are also organized on this day as a part of the festivities. In addition devotees also organize jagrans and kathas on this day.
