Durga Puja is celebrated all overIndia but has its unique identity in the eastern parts ofIndia, especially in the sattes ofWest Bengal and Orissa. People from far and wide visit these states just to get a glimpse of colorfully adorned Durga idols in various pandals and bask in the spirits of the Puja. With shimmering lights, special delicacies and cultural festivities, its like a big party, day and night. Every region has its special way of celebrating the puja and each stands out in its uniqueness.

In this race to excel and make an impression, the city of Cuttack has its own way of creating pandals during the durga Puja. The silver city literally lives up to its name and its stunning Chandi Medha(silver Pandals) have become a huge crowd puller over the years. The Millennium City celebrates all the festival with much fanfare and devotion but Dussehra is by far the most glamorous. Visitors throng the city to witness the grandeur and glitz associated with the Puja and don’t return disappointed. The glorious silver pandals created with tones of silver and oodles of talent leave people speechless with awe.
