Navratri 2015 – Naivedyam and Colours to Wear – Vijayawada Kanaka Durgamma

For 2016, please refer to this post on Devi Navratri 2016 – Naivedyam to Offer & Colours to Wear.

I had a post last year where I shared the colours to wear and naivedyam to offer for Sharad Navratri or Devi Navratri 2015. This year I have used the information from the Kanaka Durga Temple in Vijayawada as the primary source for both the colours to wear and the naivedyam to offer for the 9 days of Navratri. This year the site has not mentioned the naivedyam for Padyami or the first day and so I have omitted it as well.

The Vijayawada Kanaka Durga (or formally Sri Durga Malleswara Swamy Vari Devasthanam) is a very revered and famous temple in Andhra Pradesh located on the banks of the river Krishna on the a hill named Indrakeeladri. The Devi is said to glow in the light of  crores of suns and has a golden hue. Hence the name Kanaka Durga or Golden Durga.

Read more about this temple and the story of its origins. 

I hope this post serves as a ready reckoner for those who want to worship Kanaka Durgamma in her Navavaavtaaram.
