2009 Theme : Iron Wired And Netted Pandal
  The entire pandal was prepared with IRON WIRE AND NETTED LOOP WIRE. This gave the pandal a rugged look. The wired look was mainly due to the “BARBED WIRE” they used. Barbed wire is basically a by-products of the final products of lathe factory. The wires wre then tied with aluminium wires to give them a structure.

2008 Theme : Ajanta Ellora
  The pandal was built according to the model of ajanta and ellora. The Ajanta Caves Maharashtra, India are 29 rock-cut cave monuments which date from the 2nd century BC. The caves include paintings and sculptures considered to be masterpieces of both Buddhist religious art (which depict the Jataka tales) as well as frescos which are reminiscent of the Sigiriya paintings in Sri Lanka. The caves were built in two phases starting around 200 BC, with the second group of caves built around 600 BC. The pandal was built with plaster of paris and they also applied cement where necessary. The paintings on the wall of the pandal was done using cowdung, plaster of paris and colour. They tried to bring the essence of “frestoes” which was there in earlier days.

2006 Theme : Opera House
  The pandal which was built was a theatre building used for opera performances that consists of a stage, an orchestra pit, audience seating, and backstage facilities for costumes and set building. While some venues were constructed specifically for operas, other opera houses were part of larger performing arts centers. The texture of the cloth which was used to decorate the pandal was same as the texture of cloth used by movie halls and opera houses.
