For most of us, the festival of Dussehra is synonymous with the victory of good over evil, which in turn is synonymous with Ram’s victory over Ravan.
But there are some places in the country that symbolise the exact opposite of the above-mentioned belief. These places do not believe in celebrating Dussehra, and observe it as a solemn occasion instead.
A lot has already been said about Ravan being an ardent believer of Lord Shiva and being worshiped in several parts of Sri Lanka, but do you know about these four Indian temples that continue to worship him after all this time.
Dussehra is regarded as the day when Lord Ram defeated Ravana and rescued his abducted wife, Sita. As per the tradition, the effigy of the demon king Ravana is burnt in most parts of the country.
Apart from Ravana, the gigantic effigies of his brother Kumbhakarna and son Meghnath are also burnt.
