Bhubaneswar: Lakshmi Puja pandals in the capital city are witnessing fairly big crowds.
Idols of Goddess Lakshmi have been set up with beautiful yet simple decorations at many areas across the city. The light arrangements, however, add a colourful ambience to the festive atmosphere.
The famous Lakshmi Puja pandal at Bapuji Nagar has used eco-friendly materials to decorate its pandal on the 52nd anniversary of their puja.
Like every year, a large number of people from the rural areas from all across the state, have come to Bhubaneswar for the festival.
