Virtual Darshan of Khairatabad Ganesh 2013
Hyderabad’s Most Popular Ganesha comes in it’s latest avatar in 2013! Chaturmukha-Go-Naga-Ganesha(Four faced Ganesha with Cow & Naga at his service)! Standing at a colossal 59 feet holding a 4200 kg laddoo(an Indian delicacy) the Khairatabad Ganesha stands tall in the midst of Hyderabad Ganesh Utsav drawing lakhs of crowds from near & far! The laddoo for Khairatabad Ganesha was prepared by Suruchi Foods in Tapeswaram in East Godavari district. It took them 12hrs to prepare the laddoo and it weighs 700kg heavier than the laddoo offered to Khairatabad Ganesha in 2012.

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.
