Since its start in 2016, the United Indians of South Australia, a non-profit organization based in Adelaide, South Australia, has been commemorating Ganesh Utsav.
Sculptors Manohar Bagwe and Sadanand Bagwe, who also built the famed Lalbaug Cha Raja Ganesha, constructed the Ganesha statue at the Adelaide Ganesh Utsav.
For this year’s Ganesh Utsav in Adelaide, the Bagwes erected a 21-foot-tall Ganesha, which began its voyage to Australia on Monday, June 13, 2022.
According to United Indians of South Australia official Rajendra Zende, this year’s Ganesh Utsav in Adelaide will be held on September 3 and 4, and is expected to attract more than 15,000 worshippers from all around Australia.
According to United Indians of South Australia President Dilip Kulkarni, the Ganesh Utsav would last more than 16 hours and will feature 60 or more cultural performances by artists from a dozen countries, including India.
