Navratri 2021: The festival of Durga Pooja is celebrated with great gusto in Kolkata. Joining the festive spirit, a pandal in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas, has gone all out with the gold for Maa Durga. 

At this pandal in Baguihati, one idol is sporting eyes made of 10-11 grams of gold, while another has been draped in a saree embroidered with 6 grams of gold. The bright saree costs ₹1.5 lakh and a total of ₹10 lakh has been spent in setting up the pandal.
