With all the grand celebrations and worshippers pouring in from everywhere during the Ganesha festival, the puja organisers have left no stone unturned in creating eco-friendly Ganesha idols in different parts of the country.
With the increasing awareness about environmental pollution, people are resorting to eco-friendly methods to celebrate events and festivals. For this Ganesh Chaturthi, people opted for Ganesha idols made of clay instead of going for the idols made of materials and colours.
From a 61-feet idol at Khairatabad, Hyderabad to a Ganesha idol made using over 9,000 coconuts at a temple in Bengaluru, here are some best Ganeshas idols from around the country.
1. Ganesha Idol Made Of Rudraksha
In Chennai, Tamil Nadu, Ganesha idols were made of Rudraksha in Poompukaar Nagar, aloe vera leaves in Kolathur and conch shell in Valampuri.
