In Pictures: Ram Mandir-Themed Durga Puja Pandal In Kolkata Draws Massive Crowd

In this year's Durga Puja celebrations, Kolkata’s biggest hit was a political project – an imposing replica of the Ram Temple of Ayodhya as the pandal of Santosh Mitra Square in north Kolkata, where Jai Shree Ram rented the air. Replicas of famous structures and architecture are common in West Bengal’s Durga puja pandals, more so in Kolkata. Over the years, Kolkata has seen from Gujarat’s Somnath Temple and Akshardham to the pyramids of Egypt, the Vatican City, Japanese pagodas, the Hogwarts Castle, and Dubai’s Burj Khalifa.
