Want to see the greatest tribute to Hogwarts? Go to Calcutta. That's right, Calcutta, India. This is the Hindu festive season in Calcutta, and the season is synonymous with "pandals" or temporary structures encompassing a unique blend of celebration, relegious rites and worship. The pandal-makers of this amazing city can build anything - and this year they have erected their version of the wizard school, at FD Block in Salt Lake.
It's not without controversy, though. A few hours ago, the New Delhi High Court on Friday overturned a legal challenge and compensation claim against the pandal. The photograph I've posted here was taken a year ago, but it gives you an idea of how much work goes into the construction. This structure goes from one side of the street to the other, and I chose to focus on the bamboo cross-poles tied together with jute rope.
To see the Harry Potter pandal, go to The Telegraph.
