Khairatabad Ganesha (the Mammoth Ganapathi idol) known as the biggest and one of the most popular Ganesha Utsav mandals in not only Hyderabad but also in entire India, has got their first puja to Ganesha on 15 June 2012.
Khairatabad Ganesh Utsava Samithi has conducted Bhumi Puja on Friday for the construction of Ganesh Utsava murthi for Vinayaka Chavithi 2012.
For Ganesh Chaturthi 2012, Khairatabad Ganapathi vigraham may be made as riding a chariot. Either sides of the Ganesh idol will be occupied with the scenes of Goddess Tuljabhavani presenting sword to Shivaji Maharaj and the rising of Surya Bhagavan. But this is not the finalized version.
As per the official sources, the design will be finalized after discussing with the devotees from various sections and taking advises from common people.
