About Khairatabad Ganesh Pandal
While most people find the Ganesh Utsav synonymous to Mumbai, one can't miss noting the popular pandal in the southern state of India which attracts hundreds and thousands of devotees. The Khairatabad Mahaganpati is reportedly one of the most visited Ganesh pandals during the Hindu festival. It is said that the idol here is worshipped for a span of eleven days, followed by a Shobhayatra before immersion on Anant Chaturdashi.
In 2019, it was termed the country's tallest idol. The 61-feet-tall Ganesha weighed nearly 50 tonnes. However, the pandal dates back to its first Ganpati Bappa in 1954 which was a small one ranging to one foot. Year by year the size of the idol increased to a stunning 60-feet projection in 2014.
