    All about the Kullu Dussehra.

    The internationally famed Kullu Dussehra has a distinct cognition. In practice on this day neither the Raja began any campaign for victory, nor any kind of Durga Puja is held as is done in Bengal, nor the Ram Lila is played, nor the effigies of Ravana, Kumbhkaran, Meghnath are burnt. Instead of Ram Lila here the important Ras Lila is played. In the past there used to be held Ras Lila, dances concerning Krishna and Gopis, and the entertaining plays of Chandravali, in the camps of Raghunathji.

    Kullu Dussehra is week-long congregation of the local devtas and devis, which begins on the tenth of the white lunar period of Asvin and ends on the full moon day. In earlier times shesh (relic) were distributed to all the devatas soliciting their presence in the mela prior to the starting of the Dussehra. Shesh consists of rice (akshat: unbroken rice grains) which the devatas give out to their devotees on different occasions. Nowadays invitations are sent from the side of administration and about two hundred deities attend the festival.
