In Odisha, Durga Puja is called as Gosani Yatra, where several clay idols are decorated in intricate sola and jari work that is indigenous to the land itself. The idols are coloured in primary colours, Durga is painted in yellow and the demon is painted in blue or green. The Mahisamardini Durga is depicted as looking straight down at Mahisasura in a fierce battle that showcases Durga in her truest form, the powerful supreme goddess who destroys evil. The Gosani Yatra has its roots in the local folk tale, she is known by many names like Kakudikhai, Barabati, Janhimundia, Janhikhai, Sunya Gosani, Panapriya, Hadabai, Gelabai, Belabai etc. All the idols gather outside the Puri Jagannath Temple and are later immersed in the many rivers and sea of Odisha.
