After the 10-day-long extravaganza of Ganesh Chaturthi festivities, which commenced on 2 September, comes Ganesh Visarjan on 12 September, marking the end of the auspicious Hindu festival. High on energy, devotees carried out huge processions carrying gigantic idols of Lord Ganesha marking the culmination of the 10-day festival. On the last day of this holy festival, devotees immerse the Ganesha idols into the water bodies. It can be any water body (river, sea or a pond). The concluding day of the 10-day festival is known as Anant Chaturdashi where the devotees perform immersion. While Ganesh Chaturthi was celebrated on the 2nd September this year, Ganesha Visarjan will be held on September 12, 2019. Some people do the visarjan or immersion at the end of the first day itself. Others do the visarjan on various odd-number days like after a day and a half, on the third day, on the fifth day and on the seventh day.
