Durga Puja in Chennai

Filed Under (Fun) by Rajesh Kumar on 14-10-2010

Lot of people have  misconception about not being able to enjoy Durga Puja in Chennai. In fact, many people ask me as to where the Puja venues in Chennai are. Here are some must visit Pujas.

I happened to be able to visit Bengal Association Puja in T. Nagar this evening.



This pandal is located at Junction of Thirumalai Pillai Road and Giri Road. Bang opposite Suriya Sweets between Vallavurkottam and Quality Inn Sabari. Scroll the below map to check out your location.

Besant Nagar Puja is not at is usual spot this time. In Adyar, this time Puja is being held at Youth Hostel in Indira Nagar. It is about 100 m from LB Road on 2nd Avenue. The below map stands updated and should be helpful to make you reach.  The spot marked A is the youth hostel. It is quite close to MTC Bus Depot on LB Road which comes on the other side of LB Road. If you are coming from MG Road (the starting from Besant Nagar Church and continue LB Road) you must just cross the LB Road signal and look on the left.

Bihar Association conducts Puja and cultural events at No 17, Dhamodaran Street, Cathedral Road. This is right across the road to Stella Maris college. This puja is very well attended, just like the Besant Nagar one, and food is completely vegetarian. The below map should be helpful.

Of course, there are several other Puja Pandals. I have identified these 3 ones which are almost in the heart of town and easy to visit. Go ahead and enjoy!
