Garia Puja is celebrated in Tripura because the God Garia is supposed to provide livestock, peace, children, and wealth. She is much like Mother Shasthi, who gives children to mothers and is worshiped by married women. Therefore, Garia Puja is celebrated with vigor and enthusiasm in Tripura.

It is a carnival of the ethnic tribal and is usually celebrated with a dance concert at the end. The majority of the tribes in Tripura follow the Shakti cult but the rest worship Lord Vishnu with heart and soul till today. Since they were the tribal and their religion has been traditionally modified by the Hindu Religion, their form of worship is mainly animistic. They consider that god subsists in the components of nature. Therefore, all places are holy since either good or evil spirit resides in every place.
