Khairatabad Ganesh to stand 58 ft tall this Chaviti

Thu, Jun 16, 2016, 03:44 PM
The tallest Khairatabad Ganesh is waxing and waning for the past 60 years. The Ganesh idol at the famous khairatabad Utsav committee began with the size of 1 feet 60 years ago to 60 ft 2 years ago. But ever since it has been coming down one ft per year. Last year, it grew to 59 ft.

However, the government has suggested recently that Ganesh idols must not exceed 20 ft. The High Court ruled that the height should not exceed 15 ft.
The police finally allowed 17 ft for the Khairatabad Ganesh idol.

The All-party committee and the Ganesh committee together decided that there was no question of sticking to any of the heights mentioned. As a compromise they decided to reduce the size by 1 ft from last year. That is, this year the Khairatabad Ganesh would stand tall at 58 ft.

This decision of 58 ft was announced by Bhagyanagar Utsav Committee. The auspicious time for starting the idol-making begins at 5 p.m. on Thursday.
