: A pandal has been built with the ISRO's Chandrayaan-3 Moon mission as its theme as Ganesh Chaturthi
is around the corner. In the video, Lord Ganesha is positioned in the middle of the pandal in Chandrayaan-3. On top of the entry gate in the pandal, one can observe a model of the rocket that the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) used to launch the Chandrayaan-3 mission. Once within the gate, the visitor can access the main courtyard where Lord Ganesha is located.
Another Puja committee in the Baishakhi area of Salt Lake has built a replica of the famous Karni Mata Mandir in Rajasthan's Bikaner that has thousands of rats. The members of the puja committee have placed two idols in the marquee - Lord Ganesh and Lord Vishnu inside the pandal.
On August 23, the ambitious third Moon mission of the ISRO made history when it successfully landed on the Moon's south pole, elevating the nation to the elite club and making it the first country to do so.
Ganeshotsav in 2023, will begin on September 19 and Ganesh visarjan will be observed on September 28, the 10th day. Ganeshotsav is celebrated for 10 days and Ganpati visarjan marks the final ritual. According to Hindu Drik Panchang, it is celebrated in the Shukla Paksha of the Bhadrapada month, which falls in August or September.
The construction of beautiful pandals with various themes is this festival's main draw each year. Like every year, there are many beautiful pandals set up with fascinating themes to honour Bappa's birthday.
