Ker Puja is an important tribal festival celebrated during Shravan month in Tripura. Usually, Kerpuja begins two weeks after Kharchi Puja. In 2017, Kher Puja date is July 15.
Ker Puja is performed by Tripura’s royal family within their place. It is performed for the welfare, integration, and prosperity of the state.
Goddess Ker is considered as the guardian deity of Vastu Devata. Ker Pooja includes offerings, sacrifices, and a prescribed boundary which both safeguards people from calamities and saves people from external aggression.
