VIDEO: Hindu families celebrate Durga Puja festival in Mitcham
Families across Merton celebrated the annual Hindu festival of Durga Puja last week.
Followers of the Hindu faith gathered at Chak 89, an Indian restaurant in Mitcham, on Saturday following a week of celebrations.
The festival, which this year fell between October 9 and 14, is a long-standing tradition in Hindi culture dating back to 400AD and symbolises good triumphing over evil.
The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Krystal Miller, also attended the event.
