Gears –   

  • Wide Angle Fisheye Lens
  • Zoom Lens
  • Portrait Lens

Safety –

  • The travellers are usually asked to not wear or carry any expensive items before heading for darshan as it is a crowded place during the festival. 
  • Wear comfortable clothes of good quality because the worshipers end up pushing each other due to lack of space. The delicate designer clothes are expected to avoid. Sometimes, the bags are not allowed in some pandals, so wear something with front pockets to keep your money and cellphone. 

Safety –

  • A friendly crowd. 
  • Ask a few people about how much their entry tickets cost because some people overprice if you reside in a foreign country. 
  • A one-litre water bottle is a must as you might get dehydrated by the time you worship the idol.
