Chennai: Keeping up with the eco-friendly theme for Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations, an idol of the elephant-headed God was made using banana flowers in Chennai.

Around 7000 banana flowers were used to construct the mammoth 10-foot idol. It took around 10 days to construct the giant Ganesha idol.

 

The idol is constructed in a seated position with a swastika sign on its blessing hand.

Devotees flocked to witness this unique idol and clicked selfies with the idol.

In Maharashtra, where the festival has a greater significance, many idols have been created using clay and several other degradable materials.

The Hindu festival, which is dedicated to the Lord of new beginnings, Ganesha marked with the installation of the deity's idol at home and at elaborate pandals. The 10-day festival ends with the final immersion - also called the Visarjan - of Lord Ganesha's idol.
