Raag Description: This is a very melodious Raag. In this Raag, Rishabh and Dhaivat are considered Vadi and Samvadi notes respectively and therefore these notes are highly emphasized and used as Nyas Swar. Raag Puriya is similar to Raag Marwa. But In Raag Puriya, Gandhar and Nishad are more emphasized. The skipping of Shadj (Sa) in Aaroh-Avroh and Alpatva of Gandhar and Nishad is observed in this Raag.

This Raag is not very easily expandable. This Raag is mostly rendered in Madhya Saptak. Raag Marwa instigates the feeling of detachment or renunciation from the pains and pleasures of the material world. Illustrative combinations are:
