Welcome to the world of Durga Puja – Cologne!
Since the year 1992, the organisation of Bharat Samiti (Indischer Kulturverein – Bharat Samiti e.V.) has been celebrating its Durga Puja in Cologne (Köln) in the state of Northrhine-Westphalia (Nordrhein-Westfalen) in Germany.
It is one of its largest and longest running Durga Puja’s in continental Europe which held its first-ever Durga Puja in October 1992 and since then our home is the Bürgerzentrum in Cologne-Chorweiler. But there have been exception like in 2015, when we had to celebrate our Durga Puja in close-by Dormagen and in 2020 & 2021, when our Durga Puja had to be held virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
