Raja Lalbaugcha Ganpati Trust, Pitampura, Delhi is a replica of Lalbaugcharaja Ganpati of Mumbai. In 2014, Ganesh Chaturthi begins on August 29 and ends on September 8 with Ganpati Visarjan.
Now, modelled on the popular Mumabi pandal is the ‘Raja Lalbaugcha Ganpati’ pandal in Pitampura here. Organisers claim that they have for the first time brought the Ganesh idol from Mumbai and even fetched the priests from there.
The Ganesh Chaturthi festival, signifying the birth of Lord Ganesha, is set to begin from August 29 and continue at the Netaji Subhash Place Ground in Pitampura here until September 8, when the idol will be immersed.
While visitors at Mumbai’s Raja Lalbaugcha pandal often stand in two lines, to pay their obeisance, including one where they can directly touch the idol’s feet, those in Delhi would have a solitary line.
A ‘Raja Lalbaug Ganpati Rath Yatra’ has also been scheduled on August 27.
