The Durgapuja of the” Roy Chowdhury’s”  at the twin temple of Sarpi village is unique and is as old as 300 years. Sarpi village is roughly at a distance of 10 Km from the Durgapur Steel Town. Instead of the usual four day long Puja,l the Durga Puja at sarpi village lasts for seventeen days. Interestingly, Lord Kartik, the eldest son of Goddess Durga stands at her right side instead of the traditional norm of having Lord Ganesha at the right side. The whole village participates in the celebration keeping the age old tradition still alive.
