Five Fun Activities To Do In Bhubaneswar During These Puja Vacations

The Navratri festival which is very popular in the Northern region of the country is also celebrated with much pomp and show, albeit differently in the eastern region too. While one can find a lot of Ravana effigies being burnt to symbolise the notion of ‘good wins over evil, in the eastern region of the country, it is easy to find people worshipping Goddess Durga and Kali. However, here in Bhubaneswar, people often plan several fun activities to indulge in during this season and if you are planning to make a quick trip to the temple city, here is your guide to make the most of it:

1) Pandal Hopping: One of the most popular attractions in the city during the festive season is to witness the grandeur of Goddess’s idols in several pandals scattered over the city. Each pandal offers a profound viewing and worship experience, with several even designed as per themes and unique ideas.
