This is a whopping 59 feet idol of Lord Ganesha, which is constructed every year during Ganesh Chaturthi in Hyderabad, India. It is famously called as Khairatabad Ganesh. And the sweet or laddoo that is placed on his hand is of nearly 2700 kg weight. The weight keeps increasing every year and this year in 2015 it was the heaviest i.e., 6000 kg.

It is a 11 day festival and this is when the idol is taken for immersion on the 11th day.
