Dhauli shanti stupa of Odisha is replicated in a Durga Puja pandal in West Bengal.
The durga puja pandal at Bidhan Nagar, Midnapore in neighbouring West Bengal has become a major attraction for thousands of devotees.
A marquee replicating the Peace Pagoda at Dhauli on the outskirts of Bhubaneswar has been wonderfully carved out.
Each year, the puja organisers try to floor visitors with innovation when it comes to the kind of puja pandals constructed each year.
There are unique themes and art that not only aim to be distinctive but also deliver a meaningful message, pandal-hopping is not only a matter of fun but also a way to realise the kind of ideologies that are dominating current society.
Every year, artists come up with different themes to delight visitors, which involves months of planning and equally tedious amount of hard work.
