Durga Puja - Nayapalli, Bhubaneswar

Durga Puja is an important festival of Odisha, India and is celebrated with pomp & grandeur.

Odisha's capital is the Temple-city, Bhubaneswar.

Here are some pics of the Nayapalli Durga Puja Samiti Pandal.

Nayapalli is a locality of Bhubaneswar:

Doesn't the palace, oops Pandal, look appealing?

It was past midnight when we reached. Yet, look at the crowd!

Notice the deities Lord Balabhadra, Devi Subhadra & Lord Jagannath strategically placed on the Pandal just above the "Welcome" :

There was lovely lighting on the road leading to the Pandal.

It truly looked like a magical Palace:

This was just one of the Durga Puja Pandals of Bhubaneswar.
