Devi Saraswati is the Hindu goddess of knowledge, music, art, wisdom, and learning. We celebrate the festival of Vasant Panchami (the fifth day of spring, and also known as Saraswati Puja and Saraswati Jayanti in so many parts of India) in her honor, and mark the day by helping young children learn how to write the letters of the alphabet on that day. Here are our recommendations for sarees for saraswati puja.
This festival is specially celebrated in West Bengal with pomp and circumstance but also across the nation, read more about that here. Worshippers pray to the goddess for knowledge & wisdom as they dress in traditional wear. Here are our tips for getting the best outfit for the occasion of Saraswati puja:
The Top Colours for Sarees Of Saraswati Puja:
Yellow: Considered as one of the most auspicios and pure colours, yellow is the colour found in adundance during Vasant (spring), no suprise it is considered the best colour for Saraswati Puja.
Orange: Like Yellow, the saffron hues are synonyms with Spring and a colour you can never go wrong with for your February Fashion. This colour has the ablity to easily blend with works like embroidery & prints, allowing for rich fabrics.

What are the best materials for sarees of saraswati puja?
The festival happens generally in the month of February and thus, the weather is extremely pleasant with some small degree of warmth coming in, marking the start of summer. Thus, cotton is the best best. However, we can advise taking a chance of Muga Silk & Matka as they are also built for warm weather.
