Durgotsav 2012 - Schedule and List of Locations in Bangalore

Note: Locations (not all) updated for 2013.

Please comment if you know that the location/address is wrong or Durga Puja is not being organized at certain place.

Bongs have invaded Bangalore in big way. The evidence is more than 40 puja pandals scattered throughout Bangalore.
This is an effort to consolidate information available online about the Durga Puja celebrations happening across the city so as to give more opportunity for lazy bongs to hang around.
