Navratri is a nine-day-long festival that marks the victory of the Goddess over a demon who is called Mahisasura. The killing of the demon signifies the victory of good over evil. As per beliefs, Goddess Durga began the battle against the demon on the seventh day of Navratri, also called Maha Saptami, and killed him on Vijay Dashami. Ever since then Goddess Durga has been worshipped by the devotees as a symbol of power.
