Khairatabad Ganesh Chaturthi 2012
The largest Lord Ganesh Idol, nearly 56 feet, in the world is installed at the Khairatabad State Library during the Ganesh chaturthi festival and is immersed at Hussain sagar lake.
All the local people participate in the 11-day festival and thousands of people from many places, not only in and around Hyderabad but also throughout India, visit the Khairatabad Ganesh and get the blessings of the Lord Ganesh. On the 11th day, a big procession takes place and the idol is carried to the Hussain Sagar Lake. After immersing the idol, the festival ends.
