A VISIT TO THE GOLDEN TEMPLE IN VELLORE- EKDALIA EVERGREEN DURGA PUJA 2012








A Durga Pujo that began way back in 1943 in the Gariahat area of South Kolkata is still attracting Pandal hoppers in huge numbers. This Pujo has a charm of its own, it is not a member of theme club but it has an aura of brilliance surrounding it. Every year this Durga Pujo offers an uniqueness and freshness in its Pandal structure. Pandal hoppers stand in long queue for hours but the zealousness and zest never dies down because this Durga Pujo of South Kolkata is special and resides in our hearts.

The moment we utter its name our face instantly glows with smile . Yes www.durgapujaonline.com is talking about Ekdalia Evergreen Durga Pujo and general secretary Goutam Mukherjee tells us that in Durga Pujo 2012 Golden Temple is awaiting our presence. No here we are not talking about the Golden Temple of Amritsar, the Laxmi Narayana  Golden Temple located at Sripuram Vellore, a spiritual park situated at the foot of a small range of green hills in a place known as Malaikodi in the city of Vellore in Tamil Nadu is referred here.

The Temple was inaugurated on August 24, 2007 and has drawn the attention of thousands of devotees. Our Ekdalia Evergreen Durga Pujo is also a crowd puller and is noted for topping the  list of most crowded  Durga Pujos in the city. The exterior of the Durga Pujo Mandap would  resemble the Laxmi Narayana Temple that is covered with nine to fifteen layers of gold foil and is decorated with sculptures of the human person , columns and roof. What will be  the gold foil substitute for Ekdalia Evergreen Durga Pujo 2012 shall be interesting to watch but for that we need to wait till Panchami evening.

Looking at the Durga Protima in Ekdalia Evergreen , the devotees feel an inner peace and relaxation of mind. In the Laxmi Narayana Temple , devotees need to walk through a star path and messages of truth and justice are inscribed on the Temple walls which develop feelings of holiness in the minds of people. A similar aspect is noticed in Durga Pujo also. Ma Durga epitomizes creation and power, She is invincible and exemplifies the victory of good over evil , Ma also gives  her blessings and preaches the message of peace and harmony in society. The interiors of the Pujo Mandap is being decked up keeping  an uniformity with the exteriors.

A perfect replica of the Golden Temple is being produced with tremendous perfection. www.durgapujaonline.com understands that the Pandal hoppers are excited to see Golden Temple in Kolkata and we will also share pictures soon.
