We celebrate this festival every year on the auspicious day of the fourth day of Bhadrapada màsa (the sixth month of Hindu calendar) that generally falls at the middle of August or first week of September.
This festival is celebrated for nine days and on the tenth day, the idol is immersed in rivers or tanks with due respect.
All Ganesha temples are a place of the congregation of devotees during all these days. Cultural programmes are also arranged in which music and dance programs take place during daytime or late evenings after the worships are over.
The roads are filled with idols being carried by groups of devotees in carriages for immersion on the last day of the festival with bands of music and shouting of farewell slogans to God with a request to come earlier next year to protect them from problems.
