Kolkata: This year, the Youth Association of Mohammad Ali Park brings forward an unimaginable theme: Kedarnath Temple, located in Uttarakhand.

The most popular Durga Puja in Central Kolkata is considered to be one of the oldest and most renowned venues for Durga Puja in the city. They will be completing 55 years of Durga Puja celebrations this year.

His devotees are always eager to have darshan of Baba Kedarnath. Only a few lucky people are able to reach Baba’s door, but the good news for the people of Kolkata is that Baba Kedarnath is coming to their city for darshan. Kedarnath Temple is one of the sacred pilgrimage centers in Northern India, located on the bank of the Mandakini River at an altitude of 3584 meters above sea level. Kedarnath temple is a part of Char Dhams and Panch Kedar in Uttarakhand and one of the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva in India.

Speaking to the media, Surendra Kr. Sharma, General Secretary of the Youth Association of Mohammad Ali Park Durga Puja, said, “We came up with the idea of constructing a replica of Kedarnath temple because many of us have not visited Kedarnath, and through this pandal, they can have a glimpse of the holy shrine and they can feel that they are doing Darshan of one of the twelve jyotirlinga of Shiva. The outer look of the pandal is exactly how the Kedarnath temple looks. This year, ‘Shiva is Shakti’ will be shown in the form of Mother’s idol. This idol of Mother Goddess is being made by the famous craftsman Kush Bera of Midnapur. According to the theme, the lighting is from Chandannagar.”
