Ganesh Nimarjan !

Yesterday (25th September) was the day when all the Ganesh Idols installed throughout the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad and also from the neighbouring Ranga Reddy District were immersed into the various lakes abutting the city.

But the main procession started in the Old City and passed through the Mecca Masjid, Charminar, Madina Hotel, Afzulgunj, Moahjam Jahi Market (Karachi Bakery), Nampally, Lakdi-Ka-Pul and culminated on the Tank Bund. Majority of the Ganesh idols were immersed in the Hussain Sagar lake which was built 444 years back.

I took my Mom to show her the biggest idol in South India, the Khairatabad Ganesh which is located just a Kilometer from our place.
After sometime, took my uncle's daughter and walked the entire stretch from Khairatabad to the Necklace Road and the NTR Marg where most of the idols are immersed.

Here are the snaps of the same:

Very nice snaps. Khairatabad Ganesha, we were unable to see bcoz of all the crowd out there and i regretted that too. These snaps gave me a closer look to the idol. Thanks.
And even i had heard abt that decoration by fruits and wanted to see that too.
