The most celebrated Hindu festival commenced on September 13 and the city immersed itself in the celebrations of welcoming Lord Ganesha. The festival of Ganpati marks the birth anniversary of Lord Ganesha, Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati’s son. He is known to be the obstacle-remover and takes away all the pain and in turn blesses the family. On this occasion, Hindu devotees bring home the idol of Ganesha home and take care of him and ask to grace his blessings on the entire family. After the celebrations, devotees bid goodbye to the Lord, which is the hardest part also called as visarjan. Today we give you details of the auspicious time to perform the visarjan on the 3rd day of the festival.

The visarjan is performed on several other days apart from the last day. People immerse the idol on 1.5, 3, 5, 7 and 9 days of Ganpati. Visarjan either takes place in small man-made pond, and some even do it at home if the idol is eco-friendly. In Mumbai, all the big Ganpati idols are immersed in the Arabian Sea. The process of visarjan or immersion means that after the celebrations, Ganpati is sent back to his home. Find below the shubh muhurat and time to bid farewell to Ganpati on the 3rd day.

Before sending the idol off, people perform the last aarti and ask for his forgiveness. They also request him to come soon again next year. Hence, people send him off with equal zest and fervour, the way they welcomed him. After visarjan some of them take a little bit of the melted mud from the idol's body and place it in a pot. It is then later kept in the mandir or safely in the home.
