Ker Puja – Kerpuja in Tripura

Ker Puja is an important ritual observed in Tripura State of India during the Shraban or Shravan month. Kerpuja is performed for the welfare of the people and it is a tradition that was started by the erstwhile rulers of the region. It is traditionally a tribal festival. In 2011, the date of Ker Puja is July 23.
A special area is demarcated for Ker puja. Once the puja starts no person is allowed to enter or leave the marked area. Generally, a barrier made of bamboo announces that Ker is going on in the area.
Ker Puja is organized around 15 days after the famous Kharchi puja at Chaturdas Devata Temple.
