This year’s Durga Puja theme: Vatican City at Sreebhumi pandal
Sujit Bose, West Bengal Fire and Emergency Services Minister and Sreebhumi Sporting Club president, stated in a media interview that while many people have heard of Vatican City in Rome, only a few have travelled abroad to see it. As a result, the theme will fulfil people’s desire to visit Vatican City.
He explained that the pandal took 60 days to create and complete with the assistance of over 100 artisans. Sreebhumi drew attention last year with their Burj Khalifa theme.
These puja pandals in West Bengal are renowned for their magnificence. Visitors from all over the world flock to the city to witness its splendor. Previously, the Shreebhumi pandal club created the Bahubali movie theme pandal, which appeared completely surreal.
