Durga Puja in Delhi – Pandal Hopping

The last three days have been a whirlwind of Puja Pandals  with our Bengali friends in Delhi.

A quick photo-blog:

At Chittaranjan Park , an Egyptian theme at the Pandal – a replica of the Sphinx.

At Matrimandir in Safdarjung enclave, the foodcourt was bigger than the Puja area.  Mughlai parathas were the flavor of the season.

The Goddess herself – resplendant – I think this was a award-winning one. The “Besht” idol in South Delhi.
