During Navratri, people worship hindu god idols and worship Maa Durga. For nine days, we place the Maa Durga statues in the home and temple, worshipping and keeping fast from the law. Navaratri is a Hindu festival to worship and celebrate different forms of Maa Durga idol. Saturday, 17 October 2020 is the first day of Navratri in which the Kalash will be established on Pratipada date.
Navratri 2020 Date
As soon as the end of every Shraddha, the Pratipada date of Navratri comes from the next day and the Kalash is established. But this year it is not happening. This time Shraddh will be over as soon as it ends. Navratri will shift 20-25 days further due to excessive weather. The great astrologers told that this is actually happening due to the leap year. So this time Chaturmas which is always four months, this time will be five months. According to great astrology, after 165 years, both adhikamas and leap years are happening in a year. There will be no manglicious tasks like marriage, mundan, Karna piercing due to the adoption of a quadrant. In this period, fasting and worshipping fast have special significance. During this, Dev falls asleep. Dev awakens only after Devuthani Ekadashi.

According to Vastu Where We Place Marble Maa Durga Statue
According to Vastu Shastra, the area of meditation is considered to be the north-east direction (Ishan angle). This direction is related to mental ability and intelligence. Therefore, during the Navratri period, the idol or Kalash of the mother should be established in this direction.
