While 3D Durga Puja images will be seen this time, these ingenious pandals have attracted people over the years.

Any Durga Puja celebration is incomplete without pandal-hopping. A major attraction during the festival, the pandals see a huge gathering of people every year. Art and technology have mingled in this year's Durga Puja festival to present a unique 3D digital image of Goddess Durga at a pandal in Kolkata.The "unique" image measuring 6x14 feet will be hosted in the Jodhpur Park puja pandal which is known for its innovation. Explaining the concept, Ujjal Mitra, owner of the company assigned to execute the job, said that the idol was the result of computer-aided designs using graphic technology.While 3D images have made an entry this year, Facebook and Lego-themed pandals have left people amazed in the previous years. There have been pandal themes inspired by Disney, football stadiums and even dragons! Did you go pandal-hopping to any of these?
