Ganesh Puja 2017


Puja Fact 2017:
A record number of 900 puja mandaps came up in Cuttack this year out of which 600 mandaps to take part in the immersion ceremony, as people here have started following the trend of Mumbai.

In order to get rid of the traffic problem in the city, the immersion ceremonies this year will be held on three Sundays i.e. 3rd, 10th and 17th of September as the Ganesh Chaturthi in commencing on 25th August.

Binapani club of Chauliagunj had erected a 35 feet high idol of Lord Ganesha which was a replica of Mumbai’s Lalbagh ka Raja and had drawn a lot of attraction, around 3 years ago. This has stirred a competition among other mandaps to erect an attractive idol.
