Khairatabad lord GANESHA Photos
The Khairatabad Ganesha, one of the most popular and well known Ganesh idols not just in the state, but the entire country, has completed its diamond jubilee. It all began in in 1954, when local resident and freedom fighter late S Sankarayya founded the Sri Ganesh Utsav Committee in Khairatabad. The Committee has been overseeing the efforts to make idols every year. In 1954, the idol was just one foot high and has been increasing in height ever since.
The most popular Ganesh idol in the country completes sixty years; the 60-ft idol this year is drawing huge crowds
