Bhubaneswar, October 3 (LocalWire): The Saheed Nagar Durga Puja Samiti here has announced that the idol of Devi Durga installed at their mandap will adorn a 2.5 kg gold crown (mukut), the first-ever in Bhubaneswar.
The gold crown has been crafted by Khimji Jewellers and it took seven months’ painstaking work by six goldsmiths to make it.
The crown that has Cuttack’s famous filigree art was handed over today to the Samiti by Khimji Jewellers director Sumeet Khimji.
