Dashami Rush Seen in Puja Pandals


Bhubaneswar: The temple city was soaked in Durga Puja fervour on Saturday as thousands of visitors flooded celebration venues to get a feel of the artistic splendour of theme-based pandals on the occasion of Vijaya Dashami.

Although rain continued to take place in phases in the city, the residents continued to turn up at various pandals, with puja pandals of Rasulgarh, Nayapalli, Jharapada and Saheed Nagar remaining busy throughout the day.

Ravan podi was also observed at Baramunda, Jharapada, Naharkanta, Koradakanta and Chatabar in Chandaka. Adequate fire personnel were deployed at these sites to prevent any untoward incidents.

The immersion of idols will be done on Sunday night.
