Here are pics of the early stage of a pandal that looks to be at least 3 stories tall.  Not sure when construction started, but it must have been mid September or before. (These pics are from late September / Early October 2012.)

 

HD video of walking down the street and then up to the pandal below… Note:  Original audio was very crackly so music added from within youtube.  Sorry about the handheld nausea-inducing motion in some of it….

 

Construction at about 9 days before Puja:
