Adding to the festive cheer, a six-feet tall Durga idol made of chocolate was put on display at a city hotel today. The idol has been made of approximately 600 kg of chocolate. Three persons, under the guidance of pastry chef Sunil, worked eight hours a day and completed the idol within a week. The idol will be on display till September 29, the day of Mahanavami.

“We made the idol with chocolate – an all time favourite item of the Bengalis to celebrate their love for Durga Puja and sweets,” Keneth Scott, a top official said on behalf of the hotel. “We also wish to pay our tribute to the skilled artisans of Kumartuli, the idol-makers and artisans hub in city,” Scott said.
