During Durga Puja, the themed pandals of Kolkata turn the city into a melting pot of breathtaking art forms. This year too, Kolkata is donning a gorgeous look with a plethora of dramatic pandals. And renowned puja committee Sreebhumi Sporting Club has built a pandal which is a replica of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. Though the government has imposed restrictions on pandal hopping owing to pandemic fear, the burj has already started drawing in crowds.

A Piece Of Dubai In Kolkata

Sreebhumi Sporting Club is one of the award-winning Puja committees in Kolkata. Every year, Kolkatans stand in queues for hours to get a glimpse of the magnificent pandal at Sreebhumi. The noteworthy attraction at Sreebhumi is its huge chandelier. This year, Sreebhumi has built its pandal on the theme of Burj Khalifa, which is wearing different colours at different times of the day. During the day, the silvery structure is glimmering beautifully under the sunbeams of the spring. At night, it is looking elegant with a pompous light show.
