Durga Puja - Sahid-Nagar, Bhubaneswar

Odisha celebrates Durga Puja in grand style.

Its Pandals are enough proof. There are hundreds of Pandals and super celebration!

Odisha's present capital city- Bhubaneswar & its erstwhile capital city- Cuttack had amazing Pandals this year too.

Here are some pics from the Pandal of Sahid-Nagar, a posh locality of Bhubaneswar.

Notice the artistic decorations with beads, shells & flowers:



As usual, I loved the super light decorations!

In the pic below, can you spot a Giraffe, a man with a Guitar & Mahabharata's Shri Krishna accompanying Arjuna as his charioteer?

    1. Vishal, this is actually a temporary construction- Pandal of Durga Puja :)
      Not a real temple/architecture. Work of art, never the less!
      From the pics, it does appear so real & permanent :)
