ISKCON celebrates Navaratri, Dussehra

Thousands of devotees congregated on Sunday at Bhaktivedanta Hare Krishna temple in Watford to observe Dussehra and witness the burning of a colourful thirty-foot tall effigy of the ten-headed demon Ravana.

Costumed artistes dressed as Lord Rama and his warriors shot fire arrows at the effigy to accompaniment of tumultuous music to make sure that the entire effigy, which was filled with fireworks exploded in flames.
