Know here the color to wear on the first day of Navaratri festival

Navaratri festival is the celebration of nine divine nights during which nine forms of goddess Durga are worshiped.

The first day of Navaratri festival is the day of Shailaputri Devi. Shailaputri means the daughter (putri) of the mountains (shaila).

Shailaputri Devi is also known as Sati Bhavani, Parvati or Hemavati, the daughter of Hemavana, who is the king of the Himalayas.

Shailaputri Devi is the first among Navadurgas and so her worship takes place on the first day of Navaratri.

With the power of Lords Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva, Shailaputri Devi rides a bull and carries a trident and a lotus in her two hands.

The color to wear on the first day of Navaratri festival is 'Yellow'.
