Durga Puja’s pandal

A pandal is fabricated structure, either temporary or permanent, in a religious ceremony, like wedding or public worship or a public gathering. It is a temporary structure set up to venerate the god Ganesha during Ganesh Chaturthi or the goddess Durga during Durga Puja, known as puja pandal. We visited several beautiful pandals in Jamshedpur during 2014 Durga Puja. I really appreciated the consummate crafts created by builders. When I learned that they are only on display for a few days and are pulled down soon, I deeply had a pity for it. Anyway, let me show you those wonderful pandals.

Durga Puja also includes the worship of Shiva, who is Durga’s consort (Durga is an aspect of Goddess Parvati), in addition to Lakshmi (Left 2), Saraswati (Right 2) with Ganesha (Left1) and Kartikeya (Right1) , who are considered to be Durga’s children.
