Durga Puja and Sharad Utsav

Durga Puja and Sharad Utsav 2017


Durga Puja is here again to revive and recharge us with energy, life and happiness. Durga Puja is an eternal celebration of life, culture, customs and traditions.
A time to come together, reunite, love, share and hold hands with promises of a happy and bright year ahead.

KALLOL will be celebrating Durga Puja this year from the 27th September until 30th September
at Prinses Marijkelaan 4, 2252 HH, Voorschoten. 

During these four days Kallol promises to surprise you with traditional Puja rituals,
delicious authentic Indian food, Sharad Utsav - a cultural treat,
lots of “pure unlimited adda” and much much more.

See you all there on the 27 th September 2017
