To coincide with the Hindu festival Durga Puja, which ran from 9 – 14 October this year, three Hindu idols will go on display in the Museum of Liverpool’s atrium until 22 January 2014.

Durga Puja is one of the most important religious Hindu festivals, uniting people from across the globe. The five-day festival reconnects family, friends and relatives as they come together to worship the victory of good defeating evil.

The idols were kindly donated to the Museum of Liverpool by The Bengali Association of Merseyside and the North of England in 2009.
