It was in Pune in 1894 that Lokmanya Tilak initiated the concept of the “Sarvajanik Ganeshotsav” — the collective communal celebration of the festival of Lord Ganesha. During the month of August or September each year, the city celebrates the Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturthi. Almost every neighborhood puts up a pandal with an idol of Lord Ganesha, often amidst a mythological setting, complete with decorative lights and festive music. The 10-day festival culminates in a carnival-like procession along the busy thoroughfares of the city, with every pandal leading the idol on a float to finally immerse (visarjan) it in the local rivers. This is one of the most important yearly events in the city. There are many pandal setup in one of the important place in pune “Laxmi Road“, here you can see Tulsi baug Ganpati, Laalbagh cha Raja (Pune version) Dagdushet Ganpati and Hawa mahal is built and decorated with lights.
